MAKE MUSIC MATTER

USES THE CREATIVE PROCESS AS
A THERAPEUTIC TOOL TO HELP EMPOWER
MARGINALIZED INDIVIDUALS AND COMMUNITIES.

Creating

Working with a trained psychologist and music producer, participants write, record, and professionally produce songs about their emotions and experiences.

ADVOCATING

Artists become advocates, publicly disseminating their music through local radio broadcasts, social media, community concerts, and major global digital platforms, reducing stigma and raising awareness.

Healing

The process has a profound effect on psychological healing and the restoration of a supportive, blooming community.

HEALING IN HARMONY

ARTISTS, NOT PATIENTS.

Local, culturally appropriate psychosocial models are critical for success with traumatized populations. The creation of a tangible product – a written, recorded, and professionally produced and mastered song – allows Healing in Harmony artists to take charge of their own healing journey, and take meaningful steps towards long-term recovery.
