Sing for Hope harnesses the power of the arts to create a better world.

Our creative programs bring hope, healing, and connection to millions of people in hospitals, care facilities, schools, refugee camps, transit hubs, and community spaces worldwide. Founded in New York City in 2006, Sing for Hope partners with community-based organizations, mobilizes artists in creative service, and produces artist-designed Sing for Hope Pianos across the US and around the world.

Our programs include:

Sing for Hope Pianos

From the Bronx to Beirut, a global arts initiative that produces artist-designed pianos; places them in public spaces for anyone and everyone to enjoy; then transports and activates them year-round in permanent homes in schools, hospitals, transit hubs, refugee camps, and community-based organizations. Sing for Hope has provided more pianos for under-resourced public schools than any other organization in the world.

Sing for Hope Healing Arts

Research-based creative performances, workshops, and curated cultural experiences that promote wellness, connection, and respite in hospitals, vaccination centers, long-term care facilities, hospices, and treatment centers. Our programs encompass both in-person arts experiences as well as daily live virtual performances, classes, and workshops via our Open Arts platform.

Sing for Hope Education

Dynamic arts workshops and standards-based curricula that inspire civic action and uplift youth, educators, and local communities. Our programs, which include SFH YAA Lab and The HandaHarmony SFH Global Youth Initiative, serve youth in grades K-12 in partnership with NYC Department of Education, Los Angeles Unified School District, and The United Nations.

Sing for Hope Global

Creative advocacy, leadership, and program design that drive the integration of the arts in policy and at global convenings on social change. Sing for Hope is the official Cultural Partner of the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates.
