Expanding the Role of Music
in the Age of Covid & Climate

1. Globally, we are living in an unparalleled time of multiple and coincident challenges.

2. Forward! There is no going back because collectively we have all shifted, peri-Covid.

3. Isolation has become a psychological by-product of these times.

4. Artistic expression has an opportunity to play a major role in community healing.

5. Music is historically known for rebuilding social cohesion.

6. A redefining of the healing role of musicians in disrupted culture is called for.

7. Therapeutic/concert/folk musicians and educated soundworkers evolve into sonic activists.

8. The new audience/listener/patient emerges: society writ large.

9. Renaissance is at hand.
