Our Accelerator programs - the national Academy and local Workshops - help musicians become more effective change agents in their communities. They mobilize the often-overlooked capacity of musicians to be part of strategic and creative social justice solutions; they help facilitate collaboration between musicians and nonprofit partners, resulting in music-driven programming that attracts new sources of funding; and they raise awareness in the broader community as artists build new kinds of support from their fans and issue-based stakeholders.
Are you an artist with an idea for a social change program? The Accelerator Academy is an eight-week issue-focused virtual experience (followed by six months of mentoring) which transforms each musician’s ability to become a social change entrepreneur in their communities. Artists come away with a concrete plan and the skills to execute it.
Are you a community organization seeking to activate the social change musicians in your area around an issue or event? Our Accelerator Workshop is an adaptable weekend-long incubator program that gives artists the tools they need to develop sustainable social change programs through partnerships with local organizations.
