The Beats Across Borders purpose is to build sustainable communities working with original music.
Our goal for each project is for it to become a locally anchored, self governed entity making use of original music to develop social, financial and educational possibilities for all and especially young members of the local community surrounding the project.
We choose to work with communities consisting of people who are relevant to each other and their surroundings in a cultural way. It’s on the shoulders of these communties to secure a coherent future of its members and diminish the recruitment of young people by radical organisations. The communities can only do this by encouraging the youth to stay in engaging and resonating environments where they feel like they belong.
Our toolbox consists of leadership and teachers training, songwriting and music production workshops, concert production, business management
and NGO administration.
We do this because we believe that strong human resonance is our only chance of overcoming the future we created.
