We are currently sending out invitations to prominent and amazing Australians - people with passion, creativity, business acumen, wide ranging experience, and fire in their corporate bellies about Australia and ways to make it the best it can be. People who believe that children are amazing and powerful if we can only give them the resources they need to grow into incredible grown-ups!
It is a bit brash of us to go out to such amazing people. We make no apologies however. We figured, the best people to govern the organisation are the best people there are. So we found over thirty amazing Australians we thought might be the ones!
Good Governance is the only way this will work; to have a board which gets the message and, has the power, imagination and business creativity to forge a real future for the children of Australia: that is how it will work. It's a big ask, and an even bigger task to deliver it to Australian children.
We hope they catch the fire we have started!
Social Action through music!
Following on from the successful piloting of Australia's first El Sistema-based social action music education program for children living in disadvantaged communities - via Sistema Australia - we have created the Symphony For Life Foundation.
