Chris Walla will be speaking on a panel about music and activism during the Future of Music Coalition Summit Tuesday, November 13. Stream it live online at www.futureofmusic.org at 5:20pm (est) / 2:20pm (pst).
more about the panel:
In today’s social media world, musicians are much more than entertainers – they are activists, educators and providers of news and information. From disaster relief to election work, building awareness for issues and engaging in philanthropy, artists are redefining what it means to communicate with an audience. Our panel looks back on this election cycle, what excites (and concerns) them about their activism, and reflects on what it means to be an artist and citizen.
