This full-day convergence of the People’s Music Network is designed to strengthen connections among musicians and poets in NYC using their craft for justice and liberation. We’ll have participatory workshops, song swaps, an open mic, shared meals for lunch and dinner, a sales table, and built-in networking time.
On Sunday, October 20, People’s Music Network is hosting a full day Fall Convergence.
The event features educational and participatory workshops and song swaps during the first half of the day and an open mic for social justice during the second half. Our goal is to strengthen networks of musicians and poets in the NYC area who use their craft to support movements for justice and liberation. The day-long event includes community building activities such as an opening ceremony, shared meals for lunch and dinner, a sales table, and built-in networking time. Come join in with this community building process!
