KAT JONES HAS BEEN CHOSEN TO BE A SPEAKER AT WOMEN'S MARCH 2.0 IN NASHVILLE, TN ON JANUARY 20, 2018!!! SHE WILL BE SPEAKING IN THE "ARTIVISM" BLOCK OF THE CONFERENCE ON THE DAY OF THE MARCH. THE TITLE OF HER WORKSHOP IS "!RAISE YOUR VOICE! WRITING MUSIC AS A FORM OF ACTIVISM.
Using music in the work of activism is nothing new. It has been a tool utilized for centuries to challenge the status quo, cry out against injustice, encourage and sustain those struggling through oppression, and shift the hearts of the people on the sidelines.
In this workshop we will cover a brief history of activism in music and focus on themes of what it takes to create an "anthem" and rallying call. We will also engage in a writing excersise to cultivate "rally songs" for the march later that day or to carry with us as we cultivate music in our individual practices.
