The People's Music Network for Songs of Freedom and Struggle sustains and grows a diverse community of performing artists, activists, and allies who use music, poetry, and other art forms as catalysts for a just and peaceful world.  

We host regular online programs each month that advance our mission, including online song and poetry swaps, educational workshops, and other participatory activities.


The 2023 People’s Music Network Summer Gathering takes place at at Camp Grotonwood in Groton, MA from May 26-28, 2023. It includes:

  • Music to inspire dreams for a better world.
  • Traditions that strengthen social justice struggles.
  • A welcoming community of singers, activists, songwriters, spoken word artists, and allies committed to using the arts as catalysts for peace and justice.

On Saturday and Sunday (May 25 & 26, 2023), we’ll have participatory workshops and songswaps, mentoring sessions, and a Saturday night “Round Robin” – all highlighting the role of music in progressive social change.  Expect numerous opportunities to share music, sing together, and to join efforts to bring music into the heart of struggles for justice and freedom today.

People's Music Network held a Summer Gathering every year from 1977 to 2018. We'll be intermeshing the network PMN built throughout these years with the network we've been building more recently during the pandemic.  We'll also be remembering the members who have passed on in the last four years.

Video recordings from the PMN Virtual Winter Convergence are now available!  They have been added to the growing video archive of PMN workshops.
