SUPPORTING MUSIC AND MENTAL HEALTH IN HONG KONG

The uncertainty from the COVID-19 government restrictions has made it exceedingly difficult for the music industry, particularly musicians. Indefinite restrictions have taken a heavy toll on the mental health of not only the artists, but also the thousands of people who work alongside them.

On 24th September 2022, we will be conducting an afternoon of TedX-style talks focusing on raising awareness on music and mental health.

We will have:
• Iris Pascual & John Prymmer sharing their stories
• Linda Moana, who is a certified Love Sexuality and Relationship coach. With the modality of embodiment and somatic work, Linda will share how disregulated our nervous system becomes as people live in "survival" mode and share a few simple techniques for releasing stress, anxiety and/or depression.
• Mini concert(s) if live performance are permitted

Musicians give so much to our community on so many levels, and we want to give back to them in their time of need. We want Hong Kong musicians to thrive not just survive.
Please help us support Hong Kong’s live music personnel and revive our music industry.

Saturday 24th September 2022
The Wanch, 1/F, Henan Building, 90 Jaffe Rd, Wan Chai
3:30pm - 5pm

Background 背景資料

Our founding member, Christine Bowers (aka Chris B), has been organising and running live music events in Hong Kong since 2004, over 350 events during the past 17 years with her company The Underground Limited.

我們的創辦人,Christine Bowers(亦名為Chris B),自2004年起已致力策劃及籌辦香港的現場音樂活動。在過去的17年間,她以其公司之名The Underground Limited舉辦了超過350項活動。

In August 2020, she undertook a survey to find out how many professional musicians were suffering due to Covid-19. The one week survey (646 people participated) revealed that 62% of them were full-time musicians and 82% of them had been in that career for more than 5 years. Over 7% of these musicians had become homeless or were in the process of being evicted.

在2020年8月,她進行了一個有關多少職業音樂人因新冠肺炎疫情而慘遭困境的問卷調查。為期一週的調查中(合共646名參與者),發現百分之62的人士為全職音樂人,而當中的百分之82的人士曾從事該職業長達5年以上的時間。以上超過百分之7的音樂人更變得無家可歸,甚至經歷被驅逐出境的慘況。

This led to numerous emails and phone calls to Legislative Councilors and face-to-face meetings.  The last meeting was with Mr Casper Tsui, Secretary for Home Affairs. All these meetings highlighted how professional musicians have no official representation or body in Hong Kong.

在這困境下,就演變成傳送無數封電郵和致電予立法會議員,促成面對面會談的景象,最後一次的面談對象為民政事務局局長徐英偉先生。而這些會面都引起了香港的職業音樂人並無官方代表或代議團體的問題。

Upon researching the situation in other countries, it became clear that a non-profit focused on helping musicians during difficult times would be beneficial to the community and offer relief to career musicians.

在調查其他國家的情況期間,我們越能明瞭到一個能致力幫助音樂人渡過難關的非牟利組織的重要性,除了可以回饋社會之餘,同時亦能提供慰藉予職業音樂人。
