SPOTLIGHT: Refugee children in Athens pass through the communal spaces of Skaramagas Camp every day. Now, SFH Partner El Sistema Greece reports that the SFH Pianos there have an “illuminating effect” on the camp’s rooms, and refugee youth spend more time together in creative community.
Sing for Hope announced this week that Linda E. Johnson has been elected Chair of the Board by unanimous board vote. “Linda’s passion for equal access to creative resources for all people is a hallmark of her work on the Sing for Hope board as well as her transformational leadership of Brooklyn Public Library. As Sing for Hope continues to drive new solutions for social cohesion through the arts, from the Sing for Hope Pianos that enliven our cityscape to our youth arts and healing arts programs in under-resourced areas, there is no one more equipped than Linda to help guide our next chapter,” say Sing for Hope Co-Founders and Co-Executive Directors Camille Zamora and Monica Yunus.
