02 – What is Resilience?

We begin the conference with one of our core conversations: What is Resilience?

We are speaking of communities and music, and are walking right into proof and challenges of what is Resilience in our local music communities. Matthew Kowal, who has been building coalitions recently around the Mellon Foundation funded Art of Mass Gatherings work, begins our conversations of what Resilience is in an age of structural and demographic change, climate change, and structural emergencies that can suddenly descend upon our local communities.
