United Music Museum believes in connection and unity of all humankind and that music instantly breaks down barriers and unites people from every race, religion, and culture. Come join us for our inaugural 2017 event celebrating the power of music in conflict and be a part of the beginning of Austin's very own world-class music museum.

We are celebrating the power of music in conflict and honoring humanitarian, filmmaker and writer Bill Carter. Bill worked as a humanitarian aid worker during the Bosnian War, mostly in the besieged capital city, Sarajevo. He eventually found a way to connect with U2 and enlist their help in creating satellite links between the city and U2 concerts, and also made an award-winning documentary, «Miss Sarajevo.» Because of Bill’s work, U2 eventually threw a concert for 50,000 people in Sarajevo not long after the war ended, which people from Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, and Slovenia attended. The Associated Press said, «For two magical hours, the rock band U2 achieved what warriors, politicians and diplomats could not: They united Bosnia.» In 2009, Bill was given honorary citizenship for the work he did for Bosnia.
