Musical Intervention stands as a beacon of hope and healing, bridging the gap for fringe communities and individuals navigating the challenging path of recovery and linking them to a broader circle of people from all walks of life. Nestled in the heart of downtown New Haven, our drug-and-alcohol-free studio is more than a creative space; it’s a sanctuary that champions “Engagement Programming.” Here, individuals can not only write, professionally record, and perform original music but also rediscover their self-worth, aspirations, and dreams throughout the recovery journey.
Our journey began in 2015 at 23 Temple Street, New Haven, where we transformed a mere grant project into a haven for those experiencing homelessness. Partnering with Project Storefront, we showcased our capabilities in the heart of New Haven. Explore the testament to our success in the advertisement, “Musical Intervention Headquarters Testimony – Erin Crotty.“
Not confined to our studio, we’ve orchestrated large-scale events, like the heartwarming spectacle of over 100 people coming together to sing “Lean on Me.” (Watch the video here: 100 people singing Lean On Me).
Moreover, our groundbreaking research paper, “Public spaces as transformative creative wellness spaces: an evaluation of Musical Intervention,” reflects the promising outcomes of our unique model. The success of our experimental Musical Intervention Studio pop-up in New York City further solidifies our belief that our approach can thrive anywhere. Read more about it [here]
