OneBeat Virtual is redefining music diplomacy through a suite of programs designed to use collaborative music creation to promote civic discourse. Young musicians (ages 19-35) will explore how artists, institutions and communities can work together to rejuvenate local economies through music, technology, and the creative arts. Fellowships are incubators for music-based social entrepreneurship where innovative musicians from around the world launch collaborative projects designed to make a positive impact on local and global communities.

OneBeat Virtual is an initiative of the U.S. State Department's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs in collaboration with the groundbreaking New York-based music organization Bang on a Can's Found Sound Nation, OneBeat Virtual employs collaborative original music as a potent form of cultural diplomacy.
