Does music inspire you to dream that a better world is possible? Do you want your children to experience musical traditions that carry this message? Are you looking for a musical community where singers, listeners, songwriters, and fans are all welcome in the same place?
If you answer “yes” to any of these, you’ll find much to be excited about at the People’s Music Network Summer Gathering (PMN), June 5-7, 2015 in Bloomingburg, NY.
The PMN Summer Gathering brings together a rich blend of activists and artists using music for social change. Workshops provide a collaborative space to share music, learn and share new skills, learn about cultural traditions that support progressive social movements, and share in an exciting environment of inspiration and support. The gathering enables musicians and music lovers to come together to strengthen ourselves and each other as we bring music into struggles for freedom and justice. It is a great place to reconnect with old friends and make new ones.
At the 2015 PMN Summer Gathering, Kim and Reggie Harris will complete their service as the 2015 PMN Artists-in-Residence. Come enjoy an inspiring and rejuvenating weekend in the country with these and so many other dynamic artists and activists.
If you’d like to propose a workshop about music and social change, please submit the proposal as soon as possible. Deadline for proposals is April 15, 2015. Workshop program will be posted in early May.
The Summer Gathering has a new home in 2015: Camp Echo in Bloomingburg, NY, about 25 miles West of Newburgh, 80 miles North of New York City. The space is much larger than our previous location in High Falls, NY where the gathering took place for many years. We’re excited about this move!
