COVID-19 Relief Efforts
Click here to donate immediately to 30amp's fund to help our local artists and musicians. We will be handing out $330 micro-grants to as many qualified artists as we can. These people are hit the hardest and we need them the most, and are deeply affected by the Coronavirus outbreak and related economic downturn.
Artists in need: email your story and your your background to Jen@30amp.org. Our definition of Artists includes not only Musicians but creators and performers of all mediums, including dance, theater and fine arts.
We’re a 501(c)(3)non-profit created specifically to promote health and wellness for musicians and those that work for them: producers, songwriters, engineers, managers, roadies & bus drivers.
We operate on a local and national level, to ensure joy from music stays a part of our culture and society.
Musicians need our help.
With music unions a thing of the past outside of the classical world, over 1 million musicians young and old in the United States remain work-for-hires or self-employed artists. Crossing all demographics, musicians, and those who support them, struggle to afford health care while they also exist in unhealthy working conditions, such as constant touring, and lifestyles that further compound an already precarious health and wellness balance in their lives.
The situation is profound and the need widespread. And although pockets of local support systems are set up for working musicians, typically through universities and a smattering of generalized organizations with broad-based initiatives, there is a profound lack of awareness in the general public, and an enormous lack of resources and wasted opportunities to help those who inspire us the most.
While 30Amp prides itself on its international reach, we continue to act locally as well with our Philly initiative.
In addition to various community outreach programs and events, 30Amp is creating Philly’s first brick and mortar musicians’ clinic which will be expanded to serve artists of all mediums and host a holistic care unit that teaches supplemental health practices including mindfulness, yoga, nutrition, and personal care.
30amp has been following the model of our mentors at the New Orleans Musicians Clinic. With strong local support from the medical and professional world we look forward to this dream coming true.
