Music-Powered Community Sustainability Activism

Mar 16, 2021

10:15am – 11:10am CT

Music has tremendous power to transform, and we can channel this potency to co-create community sustainability and mutual aid projects. Music ignites our creative spark, uplifts our hearts, and connects us with an experience of unity, hope and inspiration. We can channel the dynamic creative activation of music to grow tangible change in the world, starting in our own communities. Join us to learn how- from climate action and local resilience to food supply and pandemic response. Music can serve as a trauma-informed tool of transformation, inviting us into an experience of shared power, 'power with' rather than 'power over'. This dynamic is imperative to the paradigm shift so urgently needed in the world to rapidly transform our systems to be sustainable, equitable and regenerative.
