Music Journalism For the People

We live in serious times, and serious times call for a serious soundtrack. This session will hear from music journalists who are mapping the constellations between music and revolution. Each panelist will address the role of music in struggle, the potential of media for providing platforms for revolutionary artists, and the intersections of art, music, and journalism. Participants will learn about music projects happening across North America, and leave with ideas about starting their own.
