For our 2022 AFFAs, we are launching a new Music for Change Award in partnership with the PRS Foundation. Inspired by this award, Wille and the Bandits sent us a fantastic playlist of music old and new, exploring themes of ecology, the environment and climate-related social issues!
We have added some of our own favorite tracks to the playlist, and would like to invite you to LISTEN, and COLLABORATE!
COLLABORATE: Email us your favorite environmentally conscious track to add to the playlist, on the environmental crisis and its social impact!
The Music for Change award, which is supported by the PRS Foundation, is one of five award categories chosen for the 2022 Arts Foundation Futures Awards. As with all our awards, nominations are made by practitioners and experts in the field on the basis of a proven track record of engaging with the environment through music. It is a celebration of artists, songwriters, composers, producers, and experimental sound artists who have a track record of focusing on the underlying themes related to the climate crisis. From Rock and Pop to Contemporary Classical and Opera, Dance and Electronic genres to Black Music genres, Jazz, Folk and everything in between!
Ivor Novello Lifetime Achievement Award winning and PRS Foundation Chair of the Board of Trustees, Nitin Sawhney CBE said, “I’m delighted that PRS Foundation are partnering with our friends at the Arts Foundation to once again shine a light on outstanding music creators. Now is the time to recognise those music creators whose work covers climate action, sustainability and other areas of social concerns and so it is fantastic to see that this will form the criteria of the category we are supporting this year. I very much look forward to finding out which music creators in this field are nominated over the coming months.”
