Common and Kind 2020, a spectacular collaborative concert linked to partnership workshops between schools and groups from a diverse range of backgrounds across London. Founded in 2016 to bring people together across London and across the world in positive response to division and prejudice, we created the international collaborative charity single Human Kind, and have since put on four sensational concerts. We bring together school children from a huge range of backgrounds along with refugees, asylum seekers, adult choirs and a sensational line-up of musicians.

Solo artists from 2016-19 have included Cassidy Janson, Mark Lettieri and Justin Stanton (Snarky Puppy), recorder quartet Palisander, UK hip-hop legend Ty, the UK’s 2018 Eurovision entry SuRie, percussion virtuoso Bernhard Schimpelsberger, Dame Sarah Connolly, Gwilym Simcock, Tim Garland, J. Hoard, MC Skulduggz, violinist Thomas Gould, Ahmed Mukhtar, Sarah Jane Morris, ENO Harewood Artist soprano Nadine Benjamin Bengali pop star Saida Tani and author and activist George Monbiot with folk singer Ewan McLennan.
