Goals of PMN Workshops
Sustain diverse traditions of music for progressive social change.
Help artists develop skills in musicality, songwriting, and/or music promotion.
Help activists and artists integrate music into social justice struggles effectively.
Provide space for sharing and enjoying socially and politically poignant music.
Criteria for Selecting Workshops
We're planning a workshop program in which all break out sessions will do these things:
Make clear what music and cultural work can accomplish in the context of current day movements for peace and justice.
Exhibit a collaborative form of leadership within the workshop itself in order to incubate future collaborations outside of the gathering, spread the shine among a diverse range of attending artists, and set a tone of active participation. We ask that all participants bring their shine to this gathering while also being open to what other participants have to offer as well.
Represent the full geographical breadth of the People's Music Network.
