25 Music-Related Social Enterprises

From Fair Trade Record Labels to Creative Confidence Workshops

— June 28, 2013 — Social Good
From fair trade record labels to creative confidence workshops for young people, these music-related social enterprises know the power of a good song. Some of the examples featured here are more overtly sound-affiliated, for instance, Kanaga System Krush and the Global Block Foundation even. However, some, like Community Film Unit, are more interested in the medium of film but obviously music plays a role in the creation of that, especially where visuals are concerned as connected to the mission.

Take a look at these music-related social enterprises featured on SocialBusiness.org, which include a wide range of industries, and see what kind of music many of these organization are either creating or invested in as part of their narrative, that is, a way to tell their own story.
