Anti-Oppressive Art and Music Collectives
Organized by Detroit’s Seraphine Collective, the Collective Knowledge Network Gathering will focus on how women, femmes, people of color, transgender and gender non-conforming artists organize to create visibility in music and art scenes dominated by patriarchal and institutionally racist cultural norms. The event will include a roundtable discussion, a demonstration on music technology from Third Wave Music, a DJ-ing workshop, a panel discussion and lecture. Participants will walk away with a repertoire of new ideas, hands-on experience with musical equipment and technology, and a database for music and art collectives to promote their work to new audiences online. This is an open network gathering but participants are required to fill out an application.
Coordinators of this network gathering are Tina Louise, Augusta Morrison, and Rachel Thompson.
