Harmony Fund: Supporting Art, Music, and Climate Science

The music and climate-science worlds are increasingly coming together through various initiatives, and the latest addition is Murmur, a new UK-based charity focusing on the art and music sectors. This initiative is supported by £1m in pledges from companies such as Beggars Group, Secretly Affiliates, Ninja Tune, Because Music, and !K7, with European indies body Impala also showing support.

In order to join Murmur, music and arts companies must commit to a carbon audit and reducing their carbon emissions in alignment with a 1.5C future. Additionally, they must make annual contributions to Murmur’s fund, which will be used to provide grants for projects within the visual arts and music industries that address the climate emergency. These grants will also support projects that inspire new ways of storytelling and positive action around climate change on a global scale.

One of Murmur’s initial grants was awarded to UK music bodies BPI and AIM to support their efforts on the Music Climate Pact, an initiative launched in late 2021. This collaboration between the music and climate-action sectors aims to drive positive change and raise awareness about the importance of addressing climate change within the music industry. Murmur’s establishment represents a significant step forward in the ongoing effort to bring together music and climate science for a more sustainable future.
