The Freetown Street Art & Music Festival

Freetown, Sierra Leone – Imagine a world where every brushstroke and every melody saves a life. The Freetown Street Art & Music Festival proudly announces the launch of “Art Beats & Chimpanzee,” a pioneering crowdfunding campaign that marries the vibrancy of street art and music with the critical cause of chimpanzee conservation.

Beginning Eid, 2024, this campaign aims to ignite a global movement of artivism, transforming artistic expression into a powerful tool for environmental stewardship.

A Unique Fusion of Creativity and Conservation

“Art Beats & Chimpanzee” is more than a campaign; it’s a groundbreaking initiative that seeks to inspire change through the universal languages of art and music. With a targeted goal of £5,000, the campaign is dedicated to supporting the artistic community and bolstering vital conservation efforts to protect Sierra Leone’s national animal – chimpanzee

Direct Impact and Tangible Support

The funds raised will directly contribute to a dual cause: enabling artists to shine a spotlight on environmental issues while actively engaging in the conservation of chimpanzees. “Every contribution, big or small, brings us closer to creating a sustainable future for our planet and showcases the power of collective action,” the festival organiser’s explain. The £5,000 goal is earmarked for essential conservation activities, artist support, and ensuring the festival serves as a catalyst for awareness, engagement, and action.

Hear from Those at the Heart of the Movement

Local artist and conservation advocate, Aminata Bocakarie, shares, “This festival is a platform for us to unite our voices for those who cannot speak for themselves – the majestic chimpanzees of our forests. Through our art, we narrate their stories, hoping to inspire a wave of change.” Aminata’s work, along with that of many others, symbolises the festival’s mission to use art as a beacon for conservation.
