Renee Hattar is Head of International Studies at the Royal Institute for Inter-Faith Studies and PhD in Social Sciences (Peace Studies- Music and Peace) from the University of Granada. She was one of the artists, teachers and students from Granada and Jordan that worked together for one day at the Euro-Arab Foundation for Higher Studies to explore ways of building peace and dialogue through Arts.
This fascinating seminar took place on Tuesday 28 March 2017 and a group of Jordanian and Spanish musicians conducted by Ayman Taysser provided a marvellous conclusion to the day with a concert in which Renee Hattar participated together with the Codex Choir of Granada.
We spoke to her about the concert, the seminar and her experience building bridges through Arts. Listen to her in Spanish here:
