In Place Of War Podcast
Listen to Change The Record the Attack Magazine podcast below.
In Place of War leads with the slogan, “creativity conquers conflict”. There are millions facing conflict every day. Ruth Daniels and her team deploy music and the arts to reduce conflict worldwide.
Through In Place of War, freedom, hope and opportunity is rapidly replacing violence. The charity works in various areas including where gang wars remain rampant, previous warzones and regions that still are blighted by conflict.
Where people are considered to have become products of their own environments, Ruth Daniels applies an approach centred on self-improvement.
One way In Place Of War applies this is to build music studios in gang-infused communities. The idea is to allow for creativity-guided solutions to the significant issues people are facing. By teaching the skills and providing the tools, the charity hopes to empower change.
In Place of War works in partnership with DJs, companies and organisations such as Cici, DJ Yoda, Sam Wise, DJ Matrix, Pioneer DJ, Beatport, Roland, the Arts and Humanities Research Council, the British Council to name a few.
Attack Mag was truly honoured that Ruth Daniel was so generous with her time. Please enjoy the podcast.
