2018 PMN Winter Gathering Workshops


DEADLINE: December 1, 2017

Do you want to lead a workshop session as part of this weekend? Workshops at PMN are led by participants in the gathering. We invite you to get involved in shaping the weekend by putting forth your ideas. One way you can do this is by proposing a workshop topic or propose a full workshop for the Gathering.

Please send in workshop proposals for the 2017 PMN Summer Gathering by April 15, 2017, preferably before. We’re looking for workshops that help us achieve these goals:

  • Sustain diverse traditions of using music for progressive social change.
  • Help artists develop skills in musicality, songwriting, and/or music promotion.
  • Help activists and artists to effectively integrate music into social justice struggles.
  • Provide a space for attendees to share and enjoy socially and politically poignant music.

Please complete the Workshop Proposal Form for the Adult Program (word doc) and return it as an e-mail attachment to, with the subject line “SUBMISSION-2018_PMN_WG_Workshop”.

If you don’t feel inclined to lead a workshop yourself, you can still suggest a topic that you’d like to see included in this year’s program by contacting PMN WG Workshop Organizer: Ben Grosscup ( with the subject line “SUGGESTION-2018_PMN_WG_Workshop”. Please describe your idea for the topic and feel free to suggest possible workshop leaders we can reach out to, if you have them.
