Artivism: The Power of Art for Social Transformation

Sing for Hope partnered with Adelphi University and Gottesman Libraries / Teachers College of Columbia University to produce this weekly series of multi-modal events in which presenters share how the arts, research, and outreach programs transform society.

Sing for Hope at CreativeMornings

With chapters in 220+ cities across 67 countries around the world, CreativeMornings is one of the world’s largest creative convenings.

Relief Sites

We bring Sing for Hope Pianos and programming to international locations, including relief sites and community based organizations. We launched our pilot program in partnership with El Sistema Greece, with SFH Pianos serving refugee camp populations and local communities in and around Athens.

Sing for Hope is grateful for the opportunity to work with our wonderful partners at El Sistema Greece to co-create arts programming that addresses migration integration, a key crisis of our era.

Sing for Hope is bringing the gift of harmony to leading transit hubs, such as the Port Authority Bus Terminal, driving the platform of quality of commute. Working together with organizations including the Port Authority of NY & NJ and other institutions, we are impacting over 20,000 commuters each week.
