What is it about?

We place freely accessible pianos in public space. Refugees and pedestrians play and linger to enjoy the sounds of the street pianos. Concerts by refugees and (partly famous) musicians are organized and collect donations that are used to finance piano lessons for refugees. Our motto: "Everyone is welcome to play. Everyone is welcome to listen."
