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


The OneBeat Institute is an incubator designed to provide a space for creative entrepreneurs in the OneBeat network to grow, learn and strengthen the creative ecosystems in their home countries through initiative tailored mentorship. The Institute identifies promising initiatives in early to mid-stage development led by OneBeat Alumni. During the two-week Institute, approximately three to five operating teams made up of OneBeat alumni and one to two members of their project teams come to the United States to develop their initiatives through creative exercises, peer to peer collaboration, and receive professional mentorship from leading U.S. based mentors from across business, arts, culture, technology, and education sectors.
Institute Fellows work to clarify the mission and vision for their initiative, develop business and funding plans, craft multi-year strategic plans and develop language and other media to assist their initiatives.
