Turnaround Arts infuses struggling schools with arts as a strategy for reform. The program was founded by President Obama's Committee on the Arts and Humanities and is now run by the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Turnaround Arts currently works in 73 schools, 38 districts, and 17 states and the District of Columbia. This video was created to inspire the idea that all children deserve access to the arts in school and that the arts have the power to create change.

Our primary focus is to record and film musicians performing in their natural environments and combine their talents and cultural power in innovative videos we call Songs Around The World. Creating these videos motivated us to form the Playing For Change Band—a tangible, traveling representation of our mission, featuring musicians met along our journey; and establish the Playing For Change Foundation—a separate 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to building music and art schools for children around the world. Through these efforts, we aim to create hope and inspiration for the future of our planet.
