Now in its third year, this project helps the homeless, vulnerably housed individuals and disabled people reconnect with music and arts through a series of workshops held by established musicians and tutors.
The project is a collaboration initiated and supported by JTI involving its philanthropic partners Crisis, Leonard Cheshire Disability, London Philharmonic Orchestra, and Royal Academy of Arts.
“This wonderful collaboration has been characterised by JTI’s vision to unite people from all walks of life through music and art, removing social barriers and inspiring everyone involved.”
Lisa Christodoulou, Head of Corporate Partnerships and Events, Crisis
“It’s about having the opportunity to live life to the full and through the power of music and art, JTI has enabled this to happen.”
Hugo Middlemas, Director of Fundraising, Leonard Cheshire Disability
“The project is a wonderful celebration of art and music and shows there is an artist in all of us. Everyone has something to express.”
Beth Schneider, Head of Education, Royal Academy of Arts
“To enjoy an artistic connection with the Royal Academy and the illustrious list of Academicians would be an honour for any cultural institution in the world. To do so in the company of the wonderful friends and collaborators we have met at Crisis and Leonard Cheshire Disability over the past months has been a joy.”
Helen Searl, Corporate Relations Manager, London Philharmonic Orchestra
