Traditions of Resistance Through Song & Struggle
A significant proportion of all funds raised by the Trust goes to grants, prizes and scholarships awarded to musicians whose focus is on social justice issues and whose music champions those aims for which the Trust was established.
The Trust works with community groups, campaigns and organisations to raise money to impact change and advance human rights through music and the arts. If you are from a union, community group, campaign or voluntary organisation and would like support or assistance in raising money through benefit concerts, CD production or similar activities, please contact us for more details.
You can help further our cause by making a donation or by purchasing an item from the shop. All merchandise sold to the UK market will contribute to the Trust.
- Advance, support and develop the appreciation of the art and science of music in all its aspects, including through the presentation of concerts and the production of both recorded and written music.
