The Accountability Music Awards celebrate musicians who are using their music to support transparency and accountability around the world. We all love great songs, but what's better than listening in and also knowing you are supporting artists who are changing their countries for the better?
We care about this because transparency and accountability really matter. When money meant for health clinics go missing, or drugs meant for patients are stolen, people die. When funds allocated for education go astray or are mismanaged, children cannot learn. This is devastating because it perpetuates suffering, poverty, and inequality. That’s why we support and celebrate singers, musicians, DJs and producers that are using their voices and music to raise awareness about these types of problems.
The Accountability Lab is building a movement of active citizens and responsible leaders around the world. We support change-makers to develop creative ideas for integrity in their communities. By enabling people to use information and knowledge to hold those in power to account, we help to unleash positive social and economic change.
We’re working to promote transparency and accountability around the world—but we can’t do it without you.
