Winter Gathering 2019: Youth Creative Convergence

Details TBD

Our movements for social change need to be intergenerational, and we know that kids are curious and creative, so why not hold space for kids to make intentional art?


This year’s Youth Creative Convergence is a unique opportunity for kids, youth and caregivers to come together around creative arts and social/environmental justice.  From theatre to juggling to making upcycled instruments, you’ll be amazed and invigorated by the end of this gathering.  


Any questions can be directed to Jayme or Tony at youthcreativeconvergence@gmail.com

Or, if it is time sensitive, please do not hesitate to call 413-320-6870

Call for Proposals

Proposal Submission Deadline: TBD

We are looking for workshop offerings for the 2019 Youth Creative Convergence (YCC) at the PMN Winter Gathering! Contact Jay Winell to submit proposals (purplejayme@gmail.com). Please include:

  • A description of the workshop/playshop
  • What ages you would prefer to work with (all ages is fun too!)
  • A short bio
  • Any A/V needs
  • If you will need a volunteer helper

The YCC is a mini-conference within the PMN Gathering, specifically geared toward kids, teens, and friendly grown-ups. It is a chance to connect around creative projects that promote social and environmental justice.

The program will include childcare offerings and “playshops,” plus a series of workshops specifically designed to inspire and equip teens to address a range of problems creatively!

We encourage ALL TYPES of PMN related workshops! The YCC will coincide with the scheduling for the rest of the gathering, using 30 and 60 minute time allotments for activities.

Examples of Workshops we hope people will propose include: singing, telling stories, sitting & listening, playing instruments, making messes, moving around, playing games, writing songs, playing theater games, and making skits.

Goals from the Youth Creative Convergence Organizers:

  • Interact and Generate:Participants are invited to create, co-create and improvise with each other.
  • Pass the Torch & People’s History:We share parts of the many histories of artful resistance that inspire us. We engage with the social justice questions of today and consider creative responses. Ideas from youth are celebrated and youth leadership is taken seriously.
  • Lead by Example & Share from Your Heart:Workshop leaders, organizers and performers show generosity and integrity through their offerings.
