Heartbeat invites musicians, artists, and music-enthusiasts from all over the world to join us in amplifying Israeli and Palestinian youth voices for respect, equality, and cooperation. By organizing a BE THE CHANGE event, you can help make the mic stronger than the gun.
Heartbeat’s BE THE CHANGE series presents the opportunity for you to join Heartbeat’s global community as a Heartbeat Amplifier. Lending your talents, time, and passion you can bring the music and messages of Heartbeat’s youth to the world and expand opportunities for more Israeli and Palestinian youth musicians to come together. By organizing a BE THE CHANGE event, the people you bring together can create a powerful community of support for amplifying the message of respect, equality, and cooperation -- offering wisdom, connections, and funding to take Heartbeat’s effort forward.
HEARTBEAT: BE THE CHANGE events can be as elaborate or as simple as you want.
The basic idea is to:
- Find a venue (student center, café, music hall, library, living room)
- Enlist the support of some musicians or artist
- Invite people
- Enjoy great live music and art and share the story of the Heartbeat youth musicians!
Heartbeat will happily provide print materials, music videos, and video messages from our youth musicians to add to the event. Staff will also help you identify local peacebuilding initiatives that Heartbeat can collaborate with. By bringing attention to Heartbeat’s youth musicians’ call for cooperation, justice, respect, and peace, individuals and communities can build bridges of understanding both locally and globally. Let’s bring our communities together!
