The People’s Music Network (PMN) is a diverse community of singers, artists, activists and allies that cultivates music and cultural work as catalysts for a just and peaceful world.
- Does music inspire you to dream that a better world is possible?
- Do you want to experience and contribute to musical traditions that carry this message?
- Are you looking for a musical community where singers, listeners, songwriters, fans, are all welcome in the same place?
If you answered “yes” to these, you’ll find much to be excited about at the PMN Winter Gathering, January 27-29, 2017, in Greenfield, MA, at the Greenfield Middle School.
The January 2017 PMN Artists-in-Residence are members of the Fruit of Labor Singing Ensemble — a group of cultural workers in North Carolina that uses music to organize workers and to advance the cause of social justice (pictured above).
The PMN Friday Night Concert takes place in the Greenfield Middle School Auditorium, starting at 7:30pm on January 27, 2017, which will feature the Fruit of Labor.
Then, on Saturday and Sunday (January 28 & 29, 2017), we’ll have educational workshops and songswaps; mentoring sessions; and a Saturday night “Round Robin” – all highlighting the role of music in progressive social change. A specific track of workshops for youth called the Youth Creative Convergence will take place parallel to the adult workshop. Expect numerous opportunities to share music, sing together, and to join efforts to bring music for progressive social change into the heart of struggles for justice and freedom today.
