In addition to our month-long flagship program, OneBeat is a constellation of civically engaged music projects in production around the globe


OneBeat Abroad programs bring the transformational experience of OneBeat to countries around the globe, through an annual residency and tour program that takes place in a different country or region of the world each year. OneBeat Abroad programs build upon the success of our OneBeat U.S. programming, while also supporting our growing global alumni network and strengthening those relationships. Partnering with past Fellows to bring the transformational experience of OneBeat to their home communities allows us to share OneBeat’s universal ethos of creative collaboration with a wider audience, while tailoring programs more effectively to specific regions outside of the U.S.

Programs are typically 2-3 weeks consisting of a residency, including public performances and workshops. OneBeat Abroad programs are designed in close partnership with OneBeat Alumni and U.S. Embassies, who help to create a program that will share the ethos of creative collaboration with wider audiences, while also tailoring the programs to those specific countries and regions. Since launching in 2016, OneBeat Abroad has collaborated with over 100 Fellows to produce 60 international concerts and workshops for 17,000+ audience members and around 2,700 young people, teachers and mentors in 25 cities and 10 countries across Africa, Europe, The Middle East, East Asia and South America.
