About Musicians Foundation
Empowering Musicians, Inspiring Communities
Join us at Musicians Foundation, a dynamic organization established during Covid to make a difference in the lives of musicians and our communities. We’re on a mission to raise awareness of mental well-being, ensure fair payment for performers, and create opportunities for everyone to enjoy live performances. Together, we can make a positive impact and support the vibrant world of music.
We want Hong Kong musicians to thrive not just survive. Our aim is to support and empower them while they are struggling financially and mentally.
We are dedicated to supporting and finding opportunities for local musicians to continue their music careers through times of crisis.
Why are we doing this? 成立原因
Live music bans have been in place for more than a year and there’s been no Government support for professional musicians – meaning they have no means of income. Musicians give so much to our community on so many levels, and we want to give back to them in their time of need.
