Here at Timeless, we believe everything to be interconnected.
What would music be without people listening to it? And what would life be without music?
That’s why we have decided to kick start the new year with the launch of our Culture and Sustainability pages: a place where fellow creatives and forward thinkers from all ages, backgrounds, and walks of life can come together to discuss the latest activism initiatives or deep dive into issues such as climate change and green economy.
Because there won’t be any music playing in a world undermined by structural injustice and global warming. Whether it be a collective of Gen Zers trying to promote inclusivity through art or a new start-up turning sustainable values into feasible projects, we want to spotlight the meaningful contributions of those who believe in and strive for a better future.
From time to time, we will repost previously written articles and publish new exclusive ones to reflect on today’s order of things and spark constructive debates within the music community.
Let’s make this world timeless, together.
