Join us at the forefront – Club Weld: assist neuro-diverse musicians

You can support neuro-diverse musicians to make wonderful music by donating to Club Weld.

Established in 2015, Club Weld is recognised by music curators and critics as a ground-breaking project which consistently produces breath-taking results: from residencies at the Sydney Opera House and the Art Gallery of New South Wales, to sell out shows, regular radio and podcast plays and appearances on ABC TV’s Rage. With your support more audiences will hear more wonderful music, characterised by personality and authenticity, and unrestrained by ego.

The program delivers accelerated professional outcomes and income generation for these vulnerable, isolated musicians who, on their own, face multiple, complex and in some cases insurmountable barriers to participation in the music industry. Some musicians are non-verbal, some experience challenges in social interaction and communication, others have atypical sensory reactions, one won’t visit the same place twice!

For Join us at the forefront – Club Weld, we are reaching out to the program’s supporters to raise $15,000 over the next three weeks, toward our target of $125,000 for next year’s program.

Thank you very much for taking the time to read this letter. Below is more information and a link should you or your network be interested in supporting Club Weld. We will be publicly thanking supporters on Facebook and Instagram, and for discreet donations anonymously should it be preferred.

Your support of Western Sydney’s marginalised communities through ACE programs is so very much appreciated,
