The People’s Music Network is hosting a Hybrid Winter Convergence from February 10-12, 2023, taking place both on Zoom and in person in Manhattan at The People’s Forum (TPF) – 320 West 37th Street (between 8th & 9th Avenues) New York, NY 10018.
The event begins Friday night on Zoom with a Virtual Round Robin, open to PMN members anywhere in the world (Note: to perform in the Virtual Round Robin requires filling out a form). People participating remotely via Zoom may join select workshops taking place in NYC as well as participate in Zoom-only workshops.
The in-person component of the event takes place at TPF all day on Saturday (10am to 9pm), featuring participatory workshops and song swaps in the morning and afternoon. Many of these workshops provide an opportunity to develop and/or practice collaborative performance pieces to be presented during the Saturday evening Collaborative Concert. Activities such as the opening ceremony, shared meals for lunch and dinner, a sales table for artists with merch, and built-in networking time are woven into the schedule to help strengthen our community. Zoom-only participants have the chance to participate in networking activities via Zoom that run parallel to the in-person networking activities.
We feel called to devote our musical craft to supporting social movements for justice and liberation. The PMN/NYC Organizing Committee recognizes the urgency of the political moment we’re in right now and our program will connect the music of our members with major social justice struggles.
