Our Mission

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 hundreds of community-based organizations, mobilizes thousands of artists in creative service, and produces artist-created Sing for Hope Pianos across the US and around the world. The official Cultural Partner of the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates, Sing for Hope champions art for all because we believe the arts have an unmatched capacity to uplift, unite, and heal. 

Designed in tandem with the facilities’ music and recreational therapists, our Healing Arts Programs aid healthcare staff in achieving their patients’ prescriptive therapeutic goals by creating an uplifting environment focused on reducing pain, enhancing healing environments, helping patients express emotions and need, and supporting caregiver wellness.

Sing for Hope’s Youth Arts programming offers a variety of arts experiences to students of all ages. Our artist partners bring their talent and mentoship into schools and community centers where they teach classes, lead workshops, and introduce the joy of creative expression to kids who otherwise might now discover it.

Sing for Hope Global is a three-tiered initiative bringing creative arts programs to refugee sites and mass transit hubs worldwide, while driving the international movement for increased inclusion of the arts in global convenings on social change.
The Sing for Hope Pianos are the country’s largest annual recurring public arts project, placing artist-designed pianos in parks and public spaces for anyone and everyone to play. Sparking music-making and connections, they create spontaneous moments of joy and community.
