Music Makes Change is intimate and open impact platform, that allows us to (re)connect, to feel the power of music, and to make lasting positive change in our communities, through civic engagement.

Artist / singer-songwriter Norman Vladimir believes that "one hour can change the world”. And that is why he, in partnership with Waag Futurelab, is excited to invite you to experience this special MMC edition, that combines live artists, awareness & action all in one event.

During Better Future Now Festival, Waag Futurelab and impact platform Music Makes Change are combining forces! A typical MMC edition consists of a talented musician/artist who is invited to perform an intimate set of music, followed by a conversation with the artist and a local volunteer organisation. This time we will discuss the concept of ‘hope’. How can we change the rules instead of fighting the system? Previous artist have been Marle Thomson, Kris Berry and Celine Cairo.
How can you attend? The event is free of charge, meaning we don’t ask for a financial payment. However, as always at MMC, the event will conclude with a mandatory sign-up by every attendee for ONE HOUR of volunteering with our featured local organisation, to make a powerful, local impact in our community and to round out the MMC experience. Just one hour of your time can already change the world!
