Humani-Concert on Saturday 4 March at the Rosey Concert Hall in Rolle, Switzerland! Let's go back!

Updated: 4 days ago

A taste of spring awaits you... The ticket office is now open!

CoCreate Humanity will have the pleasure of returning to the beautiful stage of the Rosey Concert Hall on Saturday 4 March, 2023 in Rolle, Switzerland! This year, eight great musicians will perform to support the association's initiative with humanitarian workers. We tell you everything...


WHY A CONCERT AT THE ROSEY CONCERT HALL?


It is never easy to talk about mental health and psychosocial well-being, even more so in the humanitarian sector where each actor has chosen this profession which can be exercised in very volatile contexts. Whether in the emergency humanitarian sector or international solidarity, the humanitarians who are deployed in the field must be in possession of all their physical and psychological faculties to act and serve the beneficiary populations as medical personnel would be in our country.


CoCreate Humanity (CCH) is a Swiss association that has existed since August 2019. It is a community of humanitarian peers that provides psychosocial support to suffering humanitarians by offering a space for neutral, benevolent and detached dialogue from organizations- employers thus allowing a real freedom of speech. CoCreate Humanity works with a large network of mental health and psychosocial well-being professionals around the world, the majority of whom have experience and knowledge of the humanitarian world.

To raise awareness of its initiative, the association regularly organizes musical events. This type of event can reach several audiences: humanitarian workers, at an individual level, the organizations that employ them and the general public. A concert also allows aid workers to reconnect with peers and rebuild social ties, as burnout and trauma often lead to isolation.


Peer support is our core business. “The peer helper is a person living or having lived through a mental health problem and whose skills and training make them a model of positive recovery. The peer helper thus promotes the recognition, by professionals, of experience and experiential knowledge. - Jean-François Pelletier, Recovery in mental health - Foundations and practices of recovery through peer support (March 2021).


Give yourself a musical break while supporting the cause of CoCreate Humanity! We all know someone who aspires to work in the humanitarian sector, who works there or is in between missions, or someone who worked there and is now retired. CoCreate Humanity is here for all generations of humanitarian workers. Together we are stronger.

Etsuko Hirose and Pierre Lenert met thanks to the Brahms sonatas opus 120 in 2015. Their understanding and their complicity then proved to be obvious.

“With Pierre Lenert, the music rises in pitch thanks to a splendid interpretation on the part of the French violist, sure, lyrical and capable of endowing his phrasing with continuous perfection. (El Periodico, Barcelona). His meeting with Yehudi Menuhin will be decisive: under his direction, he will interpret Harold in Italy by Berlioz and the Concerto by Bartok, and become a soloist of his Foundation. Pierre Lenert is also a Laureate of the Philipp Morris Foundation, as well as major international competitions: Lionel Tertis, Markneukirchen, Maurice Vieux.
