Celebrating Local Successes and Actions Around the World
October 2, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
“The role of the artist is to make the revolution irresistible.” Toni Cade Bambara
Join us for an online gathering of music and storytelling as we share and inspire one another with local EMF success stories and actions from around the world. In addition to sharing local success stories, we’re inviting people to compose and/or share music and poetry. Art can awaken our collective conscience to the concerns and challenges facing humanity, rather than leaving us susceptible to the current centralized corporate model being foisted on us, and enabled by technology.
Music shared can be prerecorded or played live during the online gathering — whatever feels most comfortable. We’re announcing this now to give everyone ample time to create, compose, and rehearse (if needed).
To make this gathering even more special, Helena Norberg-Hodge from LocalFutures.org will be sending a pre-recorded message for EMF campaigners. Helena is encouraging us to join the growing movement of people from around the world who are returning to localization, i.e. decentralized, human-scale living. As with the growing movement toward locally produced foods, technology should be decided at the local level. The current corporate/government alliance should not dictate our collective tech future.
If you plan to present either a “Local Success Story or Action” and/or music, please contact us at, firstname.lastname@example.org so we can arrange timing for presentations, and assist with video or slides as needed.
