Fellows Program

Public Domain Foundation (PDF) created the Music2Life (M2L) Fellows program, along with its companion M2L songwriting contest, to support and build a network of musician activists who use their music as a tool for measurable social change in their communities.

Select musician activists (identified through the Music2Life songwriting contest) receive financial and programmatic support for projects that apply music toward a social or political issue. Qualifying musicians, their nonprofit partners and their concepts will receive financial and programmatic support, and technical assistance over a three to six month period of time. Projects will be digitally filmed to document the impact of music on issues of social and political significance and to provide an awareness raising tool.
