Get Involved Forums Project: Musicians Healthcare
KUT’s Get Involved:Forums program seeks to connect the people of Austin with local issues and the non-profits that serve them through civic engagement and civil discourse. We aim to make information and resources comprehensive and easily accessible to the public via our on-air and digital broadcast, provide volunteer opportunities and inspire action.
Current Topic: Musician’s Healthcare in Austin.
Our first Get Involved Forum will focus on Musician’s Healthcare in Austin. This page will serve as a resource page for local musicians and the community searching for information and resources. The page will highlight the issue and the organizations providing a variety of healthcare services to local musicians. We’ll explore why the issue requires community support and highlight key volunteer opportunities to get you involved. On October 17th, KUT will host a forum at the Cactus Cafe with a panel of speakers from non-profits serving musicians and musicians themselves. After a moderated panel discussion, we will have time for audience Q & A. The forum is free and open to the public. We encourage you to attend and find out more from two local organizations – HAAM and the Sims Foundation. Find out how you can make a difference and keep Austin the vibrant live music destination it is famous for.
