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.

Our programs include:

SING FOR HOPE PIANOS

From the Bronx to Beirut, a global arts initiative that creates artist-designed pianos; places them in parks, streets, and public spaces; then transports and activates them year-round in permanent homes in schools and hospitals.

SING FOR HOPE EDUCATION

Dynamic arts workshops and standards-based curricula that inspire civic action and uplift youth, educators, and local communities.

SING FOR HOPE HEALING ARTS

Research-based creative performances, workshops, and curated cultural experiences that promote wellness, connection, and respite in hospitals, long-term care facilities, hospices, and treatment centers. 

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.

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.
