Topic for December 12: Returning to our Sources of Inspiration
The People's Music Network and other conscious communities the world over have faced massive new challenges in gathering in person during the pandemic. The inspiration we gain in community helps us maintain and hone our craft of making music. Let's share this virtual space together as fellow members of the People's Music Network who are committed to raising consciousness through music. Let's talk about the the sources of political and artistic inspiration that we return to to help us carry on, despite major challenges. Please come to this back-and-forth discussion having given some thought to these questions:
What have you learned from the politically-conscious artists that have influenced you? Are you sharing what you learned with the future generations?
What are your goals or next steps to make music and build community this coming winter?
