To build a connected music community based on the sharing of instruments and experiences
Music Broth is an inclusive social enterprise dedicated to shared equitable access to restored musical instruments and connecting people through music learning opportunities
We aim to remove barriers of access, and conduct outreach in ways that honour the idea that everyone can benefit from a relationship with music. We prioritise respect for individuals to define their own approaches to music, by striving to host relevant materials to support our members needs.
We aim to divert instrument and equipment waste from landfill by catalysing community exchange of instruments. We accept donations of instruments, renew their usefulness, and redistribute them to our members.
Our organisation relies on volunteers, donors, grants as well as monetary relationships to subsidise our service costs. We work in partnership with third sector, government and community groups to build musical bridges between parts of the community that wouldn't normally connect.
By encouraging access to musical relationships, we aim to support individuals to self actualise. Our memberships are relationships that we approach with care for individual's expressed goals. Our access fund is used to support membership costs and educational experiences for those who would not otherwise be able to afford it.
DEVELOPING CREATIVE PRACTICE
We support people at any stage in life, because we believe people are creative throughout life. We aim to support diverse community resources needs by using innovative responsive approaches to resource sharing.
GATHER AND REDISTRIBUTE RESOURCES
We continuously pursue gathering the best music performance, education and community building resources to share.
