We are thrilled to share that The Chills have announced they are giving us $10k USD for the Our People, Our City Fund.

The band received the US$10,000 with the SXSW Grulke Prize 'Career Act 2019'.  The Funds are to be given to their charity of choice.

The Grulke Prize is dedicated to former SXSW Creative Director Brent Grulke, who passed away in 2012.  The Career Act Prize is for an established artist who appeared at SXSW to reinvent themselves or launch an important new project.


The Chills were overseas and unable to be part of the amazing initial response by musicians and others in New Zealand at the time of the tragedy.  They hope their decision to contribute will encourage others to continue the crucial dialogue and support to those impacted by events on the 15th of March.
