About Band-Aid

The Philosophy

Band-Aid emerged out of the community. Youth musicians want to use their powers for good–to create a positive culture for young bands in Surrey. They want to collaborate, work together and learn together.

Band-Aid is building a network where everyone is welcome to contribute to a positive and constructive music community by acquiring skills and relationships that benefit their development as musicians.

The Ripple Effect

Band-Aid breaks down barriers and connects people. The musicians have continued to work together–planning events, building relationships and cheering each other on. The skills and direction gained at Band-Aid have resulted in more performance opportunities. Bands have since performed at Youth Fest, Surrey’s PechaKucha Series, Culture Days, the SASSY Awards, Surrey International Children’s Festival and more.
