The SongStream Project

The SongStream Project is rooted in the belief that creativity moves people in ways that statistics never will. Music inspires stories and stories inspire music. SongStream’s role is to gather and share both.

By being intentional about how music and stories help connect us to one another, SongStream highlights the capacity to move people, encourage curiosity and open up conversations. In a globalized world where social issues transcend traditional boundaries, SongStream seeks to use the ancient power of music and stories to shine a light on evolving and emerging challenges. Through audio documentaries, online presence and local activism, they share stories of everyday people and weave the webs of relationships and ideas that inspire social change.

Their show ‘Voices of Autism’ explores the role of music in the lives of four young musicians on the autism spectrum and how it helps them share their amazing gifts with the world.
