Being a musician and realising that music is a wonderful stress reliever, Philip Feinstein began a campaign to assist children and adults in detention by way of music classes and jam sessions. He also organised the collection of music instruments for asylum seekers in detention. The project began in 2009 at the Villawood Detention Centre and with the help of the public has now expanded to all detention centres throughout Australia. We are a giving nation and he is proud of the way the Australian public has helped with this mission. Philip was recently invited to form a band to perform at the ScorcherFest festival in Sydney. The success of that performance has resulted in the band continuing to play together and being a vehicle to promote on-going efforts to improve the welfare of asylum seekers through the power of music.
