Retune is a non-profit community project that connects creativity with wellbeing.

Our mission is to inspire young people to improve their mental health through creative outlets such as music and the arts. We achieve this in three ways:

Retune Live

We host live music events that promote mindfulness and wellbeing, providing a safe space without judgement where performers and audiences can share songs, stories and experiences. Check out our upcoming events.

Retune Education

We deliver workshops in schools and universities, building emotional resilience and discussing strategies for students to improve their wellbeing by engaging in the creative arts. Find out more here.

Retune Online

We produce online resources including YouTube videos and a podcast. The content features well-known creatives, who talk about the ways that their art is linked to their wellbeing. Take a look at our latest post.

What Our Partners Say

I love Retune and everything it stands for. After every event I have attended, I have come away feeling deeply soothed, calm and overwhelmed by its power. It is so rare to find a space that you immediately feel safe in. Retune provides an environment that is safe enough to share your own mental health story and which welcome the lived experiences of others. I welcome the project’s development, as it provides a platform for musicians to share their stories and for everyone at the events to express how they feel. It is magical and refreshing to be in a setting where the pace of life slows for a couple of hours, where emotions can wash over you so naturally, without judgement.

 

As a Time to Change Champion, and a previous employee at Mind in West Essex, it is clear to me that Retune is such an important organisation to help us understand the empirical importance of mental health and wellbeing in our society. I urge everyone to get themselves off the sofa on a Sunday evening, and get down to support it. Well done to all the team – you are blooming fantastic and I hope that you continue to do what you do for many many years to come.
