About the Foundation

Creating Opportunity Through Music

Following the successful pilot of the groundbreaking Wall of Sounds music engagement project, Band on the Wall and Brighter Sound launched the Band on the Wall Foundation in 2013.

With a target of £1 million, the Foundation will provide a sustainable income to fund a music engagement programme, creating a centre for young people and emerging musicians to develop their talent and find on-going support.

The work of the Foundation will take us into communities with enormous challenges. It will give a musical voice to children and young people who suffer from economic deprivation, low educational achievement, gang violence, poverty and isolation.

Together, Band on the Wall and Brighter Sound will work with people who face these challenges and, through music, provide ways in which they can understand and overcome them.
