Make Music Matter uses the creative process as a therapeutic tool to help empower marginalized individuals and communities. Our innovative Healing in Harmony program for trauma survivors around the world has served over 5000 individuals to date, from survivors of sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo, to young Syrian refugees with disabilities in Turkey, to at-risk youth in Peru. We are preparing to launch a first site in Canada with Fox Lake Cree Nation in northern Manitoba.

Working in tandem with a local trained therapist and music producer, Healing in Harmony participants write, record, and professionally produce songs about their emotions and experiences. They emerge as empowered artists and advocates whose music is distributed to millions via local radio, community concerts, and digital distribution worldwide. The music is disseminated by A4A (Artists 4 Artists) Records, with distribution through Warner Music Canada. A groundbreaking publishing model allows 100% of royalties to be returned to the artist community.
