National Network

Music to Life maintains a dynamic hub for learning, exchange and best practices in music and social justice. We offer educational support for musician changemakers, facilitate relationships between diverse artists at various stages of their career, and the first-ever awards show for artists who harness the economic, social and spiritual value of music’s capacity to heal and revitalize our communities.
