Art and music are important avenues through which the questions of identity, social cohesion and integration can be explored and stereotypes can be countered.

Working collaboratively with musicians with diverse heritages from around the World. 

Supporting and documenting music projects made by people from refugee and migrant backgrounds

Established in 2009, Best Foot Music is an intercultural music and art organisation.

We aim to encourage social inclusion and cultural diversity by supporting, promoting and documenting the music and arts of communities and individuals who have moved to the UK from around the World.

 

Work Includes:

Music recordings and documentation (See music page)

Event Production.

Supporting artists in developing their own projects.

Booking artists for events held by other organisations.

Community and artist support work and fundraising.

When we can we also document events held by similar organisations, and can work in an advisory role for those wanting to organise their own events.

Whilst we are a volunteer organisation and all committee members work on a 'Not for Profit' basis, we strongly believe musicians should be paid a professional wage for the work they do.
