About Us

title-line

Music Is Not Free is an organization that was born from another great music organization, Sunfest  which is based in London, Ontario, Canada. 

Our founders were inspired to create Music Is Not Free  after attending a conference in Las Palmas, where Mai Khoi spoke about censorship, and the musicians around the world who faced persecution for releasing music with unifying messages. 

Our mandate is to organize and help facilitate calls to action, to mobilize the individuals who care most, and to get these individuals in the same room with artists and keynote speakers who have the same visions for change. We strongly believe these issues can be tackled when we organize, and implement practical strategies.

Our events are always free to attend, while the artists who perform at them will always be paid fair and deserving wages.

Climate

Our planet is undergoing drastic changes, and climate might be the most pressing one. The facts are staggering and we must act now to help curb these disturbing trends. Climate Change is being accelerated by human activities and we have to draft new strategies for the 21st century and beyond.

Food

As the climate changes, and land-use moves towards more commercialized functions, food and the ability to feed our planet is becoming more difficult. This can be hard to understand for those in the western world because our access to food sources seems easy and ever-available. The reality is, that hundreds of million people around the world do not know where their next meal is going to come from.

Education

Studies have shown that access to education is one of the most important factors for stabilizing emerging economies, and reducing conflict around the globe. Unfortunately, millions of children around the world do not have access to education, or have seen funding for education slashed drastically by governments and aid agencies (this includes the western world). 

We believe that all children, regardless of gender, socioeconomic reality, or geography deserve access to education.

Society

True progress is multi-faceted.
To move forward and create a sustainable future for the next generation and the generations that follow, we need to address all of these aspects. Climate is closely linked to food supplies. Food supplies are intertwined with responsible and smart land-use. Conflict and lack of education are almost always tied together. If we want to make the changes we want to see, we have to be prepared to fight for it on all fronts.
