Hanna Breitenstein studied sociology, educational science and elementary music education in Osnabrück. She came to Hanover in 2016 for her Master's degree in educational science. She worked for various social and cultural educational projects, including the Morgenland Festival Osnabrück. The focus of her master's degree lay on education in relation to culture and the media, which enabled her to link socio-political issues and music in her professional career.

Since doing an internship at the Global Board, she has been working in various functions at the Landesmusikakademie und Musikland Niedersachsen gGmbH. The Global Board supports refugee musicians in an advisory and mediating capacity. Concert formats, cooperations and training programs have been realized as part of the project. After having returned from parental leave she took over the project coordination last year. However, the funding for the project ended in December. She is currently working as an education officer in the area of music communication and outreach.

Music & Society


Hybrid cultural contexts and experiences are becoming more and more normal in the world today. True, musical life in different countries and regions is still shaped by specific traditions, but changes can be felt everywhere. What effects do processes of migration and globalisation have on musical life? What are the recognisable trends in Germany and elsewhere? And: how can music help to promote integration?
