Mission Statement

To create unique music programs to help survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, and individuals suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) develop healthy coping mechanisms to aid in the recovery process. Using a group-centered format, MBM programming promotes a co-creative environment that seeks to support each person during his/her trauma recovery.

Description

MBM chose to focus our programming on these particular groups because of the long-term physical, mental, and emotional effects that survivors experience as a result of their trauma. These experiences can change how survivors see themselves and society as a whole. MBM believes in "art for humanity's sake" vs. "art for art's sake". We believe that making the arts accessible to the public through education and live performance is extremely important for the cultural enrichment of our communities. We want to go a step further by directly engaging the public, using the arts, as a means of bringing attention to domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, and individuals suffering from PTSD. MBM wants to promote a dramatic shift in the way that participants experience the recovery process while bringing public attention to how these issues affect our families and communities. By healing our individuals, we are, in turn, healing our communities.
