OneBeat Collaborates with Caldera
onebeatOneBeat is an incubator for music-based social entrepreneurship, where innovative musicians from around the world launch collaborative projects designed to make a positive impact on local and global communities. An initiative of the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs in collaboration with the groundbreaking New York-based music organization Found Sound Nation, OneBeat employs collaborative music creation as a potent form of cultural diplomacy.
In a time when politics has left us with a fractured world, music has a special power to tie together our disparate communities, retracing our common histories, and re-affirming our common humanity, empathy and creativity. In this spirit, OneBeat convenes 25 musical changemakers from around the world to create and perform new work in the U.S. and explore how artists and institutions can work together to rejuvenate local economies through music, technology and the creative arts.

More than a music festival or a simple exchange, OneBeat is an incubator for new forms of musical expression, a hatchery for novel ways to use music as a tool for the betterment of our communities and an ever-growing web of interconnected artists and change-makers.

This fall, in partnership with Caldera Arts and local community organizations, OneBeat brings this unique program to Central Oregon for an intensive residency and a series of performances, interactive installations, discussions and workshops.
