The mission of The Midgley Project is to invoke & inspire change in the human experience.
The foundation seeks to meet its mission through advancing equality, promoting the arts, empowering through education and preserving the environment.
To achieve a society where all persons are treated equally, where education is a tool for driving social change, where the arts are widely accessible to all and where the environment is preserved for generations to come.
Established in 2017 by aListen, The Midgley Project, through strategic partnerships and grassroots fundraising efforts, supports various organizations who are on the ground driving positive change in the human experience. aListen’s passion for philanthropy has allowed for support grants of over $200,000 and has been recognized as a key leader in building social change.

The Midgley Project is a groundbreaking, inclusive arts education program for students of all abilities (with and without disabilities), culminating with a major public concert featuring these students and prominent headlining musicians. Students involved in the program participate in a series of cross-pollenated arts classes that include training in dance, singing, visual art, American Sign Language, mime work, playing musical instruments, visual technologies, spoken word and more. All of the classes combine two or more art forms within a new and unique curriculum that ensures all students will experience a challenging and rewarding semester of classes.
