Come one, come all!


Join us for an interactive night to create music & movement arts with fellow social justice activists.

The Maryland Poor People’s Campaign will be holding its “inaugural” song brew online on Wednesday, January 20th at 7pm.

What is a song brew?

A song brew is a virtual gathering where artists (and artists yet-to-be) of all mediums – not just singers and musicians – come together to create song and reflect on issues facing us today.

Impending – and some already occurring – evictions and foreclosures are of major concern in Maryland. As such, we would like the theme of this song brew to be on housing issues.

We ask that you come prepared with a couple lines of lyrics or spoken word; or perhaps an original beat or riff; or for those who are pictorial artists, some pencils or paints or such. We will attempt to put together what we bring, along with improv, into a new tune, orchestrated by our Songleaders!

Here is a nice document on blending music & social justice:

If you want to read some data on housing so as to zero in on what content you create, here are a couple resources:

Remember, this is for all artists… and even those who have not yet become artists!

We hope to see you there!

Sincerely,
Maryland Poor People’s Campaign Theomusicology & Movement Arts (TMA)
