‘Walk Miles for Music’ to find sustainable living solutions for artist musicians
60 days. 600 miles. No money.
Suzana Barbosa (AKA Suzana d’Amour & Lumanova) is an artist musician, performer and an agent of change.
Four years ago, she started I Dare You to Care, a profit-for-
But Barbosa felt something was missing. She asked herself why she had never focused exclusively on
artist musicians. So, she decided to dare herself to care and step it up for music.
The Care? … to cocreate sustainable living solutions for artist musicians.
The Dare? … walk up the North American coast for 60 days, with no money.
“Going with no money symbolizes the reality most artists live with today … if they don’t get paid for their art, they can’t live” says Barbosa. “I am a solutions oriented person.
I believe with collaboration and win-win business strategies, we can find a way to solve this
‘starving artist’ mentality and change the reality. Walk Miles for Music is not about the distance,
but more about the conversations, ideas and solutions that will come out of it.”
Barbosa invites artists, music lovers, businesses and organizations to join her along the way and
contribute to this much needed dialogue. ‘Walk Miles for Music’ will be made into a documentary in
conjunction with Nathan Greene, CEO Imaginology.
