Sound Mind Collective

SMC is a Musician-led grassroots organization devoted to empowering independent music makers and bringing positive change to our communities here in NYC through education, fundraising, policy change, and social justice advocacy.

We hold monthly meetings, host regular business workshops for musicians, and put on bi-annual fundraising concerts towards social and political causes we believe in. SMC is also campaigning to ensure that the voices of independent music creatives are heard by local policy makers.

Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, SMC has partnered with The Payback 501 (c)(3) to provide emergency financial assistance to musicians in need. Please click the link below for more info on how to donate or apply:
