Call for Speakers, Organizations, and Participants
Resilience and Community Ecosystems
How can we learn from other local communities creating Resilience in the music social/structural disruption/reconstruction under COVID-19?
We have joined the Maremel Institute as a co-host, along with UCLA Alpert, CU Denver and many other organizations for a Virtual Gathering/Conference on April 17. Would your organization like to participate as a collaborator? Do you know of someone who is doing amazing things around their local music communities?

Event Mission: A gathering of lived experiences and workable ideas
This event brings together diverse music leaders and creators online to learn and share from local community response, emergent solutions, and heroic efforts to support local artists, venues, creative communities, and support networks in the surge/challenges of the COVID-19.
- Unique practices that may transfer to other areas
- Ways to learn between great ecosystems and communities of communities
- New combinations of business and community models – bridges beyond streaming
- “After” – rebuilding trust, conflicts for space/time/funds, challenges of funding in a community rebuilding mode
Please reach out if you have other ideas as well. This is a Big Tent project, meant to connect groups and great ideas.
- Dr. Gigi Louisa Johnson, President, Maremel Institute; Faculty, UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music
- Storm Gloor, Professor, University of Colorado Denver College of Arts & Media
