Our mission is to reduce social and cultural inequalities through music.
Our vision is a fairer society where culture is accessible to everyone, regardless of their geographic location.
OSF supports young musicians’ talent in inland Portugal and Spain. We do this by fighting the abandonment of music teaching and rewarding academic excellence through concerts, music education, and grant giving.
We also exist to spread access to culture, and for this we work across dozens of localities in the countryside, offering free concerts, open rehearsals, and pedagogy & introduction to music for local people.
We champion values of cooperation and international integration, combining Portuguese and Spanish musicians side by side.
We all have a role to play
With just ten years to go, an ambitious global effort is underway to deliver the 2030 promise. We want to take a stand and we are calling on our community to showcase how they are contributing to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, whilst influencing more and more people to unravel their role to play.
Here, you will find four different ways your ideas can flourish, dialogue can be enhanced, and action can take place. You can choose one or all four, and Nova SBE will be there to support you all the way and guarantee tangible change.
We all have a role to play, and this is your way in.
