Amnesty International and SofarSounds: #GiveAHome

Thousands of artists in hundreds of homes… for the millions forced to flee theirs. A global act of welcome.

Musicians, refugees and communities are coming together in homes all over the world to recognise the things that unite us: the shared love of music... and the need for a place to call home.

Sofar Sounds and Amnesty International welcome you to join us at small, intimate gigs taking place on a huge global scale in support of 20M+ refugees worldwide.

Because we all deserve a home, not just the memory of one.

Minneapolis is hosting a secret show featuring Polica, Dua, and Lula Saleh.

Sweetness Of Wild

Sweetness of Wild is a coming of age, poetic film series, based in Black Minneapolis. This series with humor and complexity situates itself in the renaissance of Black Minneapolis that is sweetly and radically being defined by Black Lives Matter activism, unrepentant feminism, hood life, queerness, poverty transcendence, experimental Black music, compelling visual and performance art and urban bike culture. Please support this project by making a contribution to our Indiegogo campaign!
