Amnesty International, in collaboration with London-based concert event company Sofar Sounds, announced the 'Give A Home' Concert Series today to mark World Refugee Day. The concert series, to be broadcasted live via partnerships with Facebook and VICE, will see music fans opening up their homes to refugees, musicians, and activists to host the concerts in venues all around the world. Over 1,000 musicians are expected to perform at over 300 concerts in as many as 60 countries worldwide.

Funds from the project will go to continue Amnesty International's work documenting human rights abuses and the continued refugee crisis. Venues will remain unannounced until closer to the September 20 launch date of the project. Apply for a chance to win tickets to one of the secret shows in your city, and make a donation to the cause on Sofar Sounds official website.
