Found Sound Nation (FSN) is a creative agency that uses music-making to connect people across cultural divides. FSN believes that collaborative music creation is a deeply effective way to become aware of the beauty, trauma, and hidden potential in our communities. The process gives voice to the underrepresented, unlocks the creative potential of youth, and supports movements for social justice. Since 2012, FSN has designed and led the OneBeat global music diplomacy program, bringing together musicians from around the globe each fall for a month of creative collaboration and performance in the U.S. In 2019, FSN unveiled Mosaic Interactive, a suite of interdisciplinary pieces created with a team of artists from Morocco, Turkey, Palestine, Indonesia, South Africa and the U.S.
