Notice

We have applied for and are patiently waiting for the Government to confirm our Charitable tax status: nonetheless we are operating as a Charity and as such will raise money to use to help the musician community in Hong Kong.

由於Musicians Foundation正在耐心等待香港政府確認我們的稅務狀況,現時我們會暫時以慈善團體方式營運,亦會透過籌款以支持本地音樂創作人。

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。
