Operation Coexist, Inc. is working to improve the quality of life through the healing power of music. We will host and sponsor concerts and music festivals to raise money to provide funding for music therapy programs in local hospitals and to implement music programs for at-risk youth in local school districts.
Our team will assist in promoting and progressing the current local creative art + music scene by creating an opportunity for musicians and music lovers to give back to the community by performing, volunteering and attending our events. We will bring national acts to the area to perform which will aide in creating a strong social media presence to raise awareness for our cause.
“Young music fans aren't just being lazy and avoiding real life issues and avoiding getting a real job, they are out changing the world by taking action. Many people’s misconception about our new generation will quickly change when they learn about the music community and all of the young people who are changing the world.” – Hopeless Records, Take Action
Operation Coexist was founded in December of 2012 by Katie Talbert. We are governed by a board of directors dedicated to increasing music therapy services and music programs in the Tampa bay area. Our primary funding will stem from community support through donations and fundraising events. We believe that if anything is going to change this world then it has to be done through music.
“I think music in itself is healing. It is an explosive expression of humanity. It is something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from , everybody loves music.” – Billy Joel
