From the beginning, SIM São Paulo has always believed in music as something capable of changing lives, promoting growth. With that thought, the SIM Transforma, nucleus of social change that has been operating on the outskirts of São Paulo since 2015.
Throughout the year, SIM Transforma conducts training and mentoring activities for young professionals and artists from peripheral neighborhoods, encouraging the insertion of these new people in the music market, thus promoting a career and life perspective for many of them. SIM has carried out work in partnership with five culture factories per year, providing access and training to more than 200 young people.
That year, when the face-to-face events were paralyzed by the pandemic, SIM São Paulo held a series of video lectures on career possibilities in the music world and now promotes a fundraising campaign. During the exhibitions of the In Place Of War panels, which take place on Friday in November, a QR code will be made available that will take you to a Sympla page, where donations can be made. This same code can be accessed below.
All the money collected from donations during SIM SÃO PAULO 2020 will be used to expand SIM Transforma's operations to other cities in 2021 and will also be used to finance transportation costs for professionals (speakers and mentors), dissemination of activities, production team general and local in each neighborhood (promoting experience for these young people), food, equipment rental, and other costs related to carrying out the idealized activities.
The projects, schedules and costs related to them will be posted on the SIM website in January 2021, as well as accountability for payments made each month.
