Creating For a Cause: Music for Action & Awareness

Mar 15, 2017

3:30pm – 4:30pm CT

Music is a force that unites humanity all around the world, particularly in times of strife. Creating and promoting music to fundraise for or showcase a cause is a powerful tool unique to artists, their teams, and the industry at large. Artists and professionals at any level can be philanthropists. Giving is gratifying work and there are countless ways to collaborate for a good cause. We will discuss currencies and methods of 'giving' to communities, organizations and nonprofits, how to build partnerships in philanthropy, and ways to create awareness for a cause.
