Community singing is an art of stepping to the edge together — to the edge of our own unfolding and to the edge of the conversations most needed in our collective communities. A world-class lineup of community song leaders from around the country is coming together for this celebratory and unprecedented property-wide singing event. We will use the power of singing together in the oral tradition to craft a recipe for our hungry world that includes empowerment, connection, and joy. This will be a highly collaborative weekend among the faculty, who will offer a mix of breakout sessions as well as daily gatherings of the whole group. This event is accessible and welcoming to all voices with every level of experience. Come ready to offer your voice in a potent exchange designed to sow deep seeds of inspiration, community, and action on the path of justice.

Faculty include Ysaye Barnwell, Melanie DeMore, Laurence Cole, MaMuse, Barbara McAfee, Maggie Wheeler, Emile Hassan Dyer, Kate Munger, Lisa G. Littlebird, Aimee Ringle, Heather Houston, Marian Van Namen, Liz Rog, Glen Phillips, and Jayson Fann.
