Best Foot Music is a Brighton based non-profit organisation.
We collaborate with musicians & communities who have moved to the UK from around the World.
Established in 2009, we aim to make space for artists who may be marginalised, to co-create projects and document their work.
Some of the artists we work with on a regular basis and music in aid of local refugee communities. Please see the Resources page for links to some Brighton based groups we collaborate with.
Labels & Launguage:
Best Foot Music is a play on 'Best foot forward'. A way to look ahead, and conjure positive images & conversations on the movement of people & cultural contributions made by those people. Music is a route through which people can express their complex identities and become part of a wider community.
Whilst helping make it easy to find us online, simplistic labels such as 'Refugee' & 'Migrant', or viewing people solely by
religion or ethnicity can be divisive.
We value individual complex identities and promote shared values, experiences,
commonalities and interconnections.
