Campaign Story

MusicWorks is a Non-Profit Organisation partnering with communities in Cape Town’s marginalised neighbourhoods to nurture and inspire hope through music and dance.

Musicworks aims to help young children who grow up in under-resourced environments, characterised by poverty, violence, abuse, substance abuse, gangsterism, neglect, abandonment or illness (most often a combination of these) to get the chance to experience the playfulness of childhood, which impacts on the children’s emotional and social development.

Through instrumental improvisation, singing, musical storytelling, song writing or movement to music, Musicworks creates safe spaces for engagement, creativity, care and healing.

MusicWorks Interventions are grounded in Music Therapy theory and principles, and offer a vital service – as a means of strengthening children subject to trauma and neglect; supporting their social, cognitive and emotional development; and ultimately impacting the psychosocial fabric of their larger communities.

MusicWorks was founded in September 2002 and registered as a Non-Profit Organisation in November 2003, as the Music Therapy Community Clinic.
