My story

[p]"Music For The Mind'' is a youth driven charitable campaign founded by Stagewave and Empathy. Having been creating innovative live music events and artistic collaborative projects for many years, we've teamed up to make a positive change. This project aims to improve the lives of young creatives who have been hit hard by the global pandemic. We’ve gained the attention of mental health charities and brands that want to help support our cause to make lasting changes.[/p][p]We will run three live music events in London (YES, LIVE MUSIC!), as we think it's been long enough without them. We will give work to over 30 artists, musicians, and freelancers who have been without work since last March. These live events will host mental health care brands, charities, producers, journalists, young creatives, and much more. A networking bubble for people to generate opportunities and connections to tackle the mental health crisis. We will also broadcast the events live on our online platforms for those who can't attend in person.[/p][p]We are also creating a collaborative online music video. This will feature over 50 artists and musicians from all over the world, performing from home to support our online campaign.[/p][p]Finally, we will raise £5000 for charities Young Minds and Samaritans Central London by the end of the campaign. These charities provide mental health services that are critical at the current time; our fundraising will give them the support they need.[/p][p][u]Our Chosen Charities [/u][/p][p]Central London Samaritans, based in the heart of London, is the founding branch of the wider Samaritans organisation.[/p][p]Volunteers provide confidential, non-judgemental, emotional support to anyone who is struggling to cope. Samaritans are there to listen round the clock every hour of every day and have provided this support without interruption since opening in 1953. Samaritans listen to you and help you talk through your concerns, worries and troubles. Anyone can contact Samaritans for free on 116 123 or can email jo@samaritans.org[/p][p]"It’s not that one phone call magically fixed everything - the problems were still there - but it was a turning point. And since then, I’ve been able to build the sort of life that would have seemed impossible to me." - Samaritans Caller[/p][p]Your help will enable volunteers at Central London Samaritans to be there for someone in need, who has perhaps reached crisis point or who is going through a tough time.[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
