Updates and Virtual Events

Community Conversations

Happy Locally Applicable Holiday!  

Based on where you are, you could be losing a few pounds from Thanksgiving, enjoying lighting candles, or planning some travel with family.  And for many of us, thinking about what the shifts in COVID-19 may mean for our communities, family, music events, and travels.  

We have more places and communities to catch up with and were thinking, "How can we capture and rethink together what is afoot for 2022?"  And how are we rebuilding and measuring where we are growing as communities next?  We're enjoying what groups like Vibe Lab and Sound Diplomacy have been exploring, and share some of those updates below.
