The Music Relief Foundation is running a month-long campaign called Musictober, asking young people to send in a three-minute video of themselves being creative.
The video should show the participant playing an instrument, drawing, acting or singing along with a fews words as to why they chose that art form to express themselves and how it has helped them.
At the end of the month, we will be hosting a webinar and be reaching out to some of these individuals for a Q&A session.
Send videos via email
or via our
WhatsApp number 07535990735.
