Congratulations to the Dans la Rue team, a main partner of ACCESS Open Minds RIPAJ-Montréal (Réseau d’Intervention de Proximité Auprès des Jeunes de la rue), and to the generous audience who attended the Leonard Cohen-themed benefit concert March 29th at La Sala Rossa.
The event took place on Piano Day (the 88th day of the year to match the 88 keys on a piano), and the funds raised allowed the music therapy program at Dans la Rue to acquire a new piano for their practice room at the day centre. The music therapy program provides a therapeutic service to youth and young adults living in precarious situations, and supports them in achieving higher levels of well-being and autonomy.
