The project was born from an idea of Peter Iwers, Jeff Scott Soto, Paulo Mendonca and Fredrik Stenberg.
During the recent years they’ve been seeing videos, hearing stories and experiencing the destructive consequences of bullying and violence. People in all ages being treated unfair and disrespectful because of different reasons. It is something that we see in the schoolyards, in the locker rooms, in the nursing homes, at the offices, on the internet and the social media platforms.
Attention is awareness:
Bullying is not always something that is easy to detect but if we can give attention to the problem the awareness increases. We want to do it through the transversal language of music and art in general, with the intent to create a real INTERNATIONAL NETWORK of ARTISTS from all over the world.
We have already organized concerts-events in which members of the association perform to make people aware of violence, bullying, a dangerous phenomenon in serious growth.
Why do we do this?
We want to put a spotlight on the problem and make people aware of the problem and consequences that comes through bullying and violence. We share the same view of human equality and the love for music. We want to get people’s attention, especially the young guys, through the art that we make.
We can make that difference… United Against Bullying.
