RoR needs to raise funds for the inaugural BAM! 2013 Convergence, bringing dozens of politically engaged street bands together to share skills and experience!
Take action by helping Rhythms of Resistance in August 2013!
On the weekend of August 23 – 25th, dozens of musicians and members of politically-engaged street bands from across North America will come to Toronto for the inaugural Bands Agitate and Mobilize! 2013. A convergence to share skills, strengthen community, create cross-border ties and use music to create change.
BAM!2013 will be a gathering space for attendees to participate in a weekend long series of workshops, skill-shares, facilitated discussion circles and caucuses; including…
Strategy sessions to develop and share tools/tactics for how to engage in struggles in our communities
Events to deepen our support for social movements locally, and across North America
Sessions to improve our musical practice, as well as sessions on tactical frivolity
Workshops on what it means to strive for “safer spaces” in our bands and activist collectives
Workshops on what it means to apply an anti-oppressive model to radical, street bands
…And, so much more!
