The Beats Across Borders mission is to re-enable music by supporting young and untrained music talents through music production workshops and mentorship programmes and helping local creative sector growth by building local cultural entrepreneurship capacities.
Artists engaged in Beats Across Borders projects are specialized in using the latest music and visual arts production technology. This way a project provides an immediate creative outlet and opportunity for untrained young people to participate in a modern artistic production process, from the preliminary sketches through the actual production to the final public presentation.
At the heart of a Beats Across Borders project is:
We are working in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, England, Tanzania and the Philippines, planning projects in Haiti and Greenland.

The experience we gave the kids at SDC was personally the best experience I had during the workshops last week. To see the sparkling kids and the curiosity to our work was all worth it. Not that the other workshops wasn't just as great, this was just very different! There are 70 kids at the institution who we divided into 7 groups with musical assignments. One group had to write lyrics, another did beat boxing, rapping, singing etc. When time was up they got back with each of their different parts to be recorded and mixed all together. I will put up a link when the final masters are done! Involving the kids and giving them a sense of being a part of this artistic process was a fantastic feeling - to all of us indeed
