Save the date — January 29-31, 2016 — for the 2016 PMN Winter Gathering in downtown Albany, NY at the Hacket Middle School. We already have a local organizing committee with people taking on logistics and programming tasks. Please get in touch if you’d like to get involved in the planning. It takes a community to make the gathering happen!
2016 PMN Artist in Residence
Joe Jencks will serve as the PMN Artist-in-Residence in 2016. His service follows the following PMN Arists in Residence: Kim and Reggie Harris (2015); Magpie (2014); Emma’s Revolution (2013); and Si Kahn (2012). Joe wrote up a letter, describing what PMN has meant for him in the past and what he hopes to give back to PMN next year.
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.
WORKSHOP PROGRAM NOW AVAILABLE!
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.
Invite your friends and let people know that you’re coming by RSVPing on Facebook.
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!
