5 Keys to a Great Art Music Justice Weekend

Art Music Justice Week is here! We’re excited (ok and maybe a little giddy to boot) and hope you are too.

While far from comprehensive, here are 5 ‘keys’ to our time together:

  • GET YOUR TICKETS & T-SHIRTS!

    There are some tickets still available so order your tickets and t-shirts if you haven’t already. Just do it soon! Ticket prices go up for day of sales and they will be available at Will Call

  • DON’T LEAVE YOUR WALLET AT HOME

    Bring cash or check to purchase tickets, or find helpful books or study guides in our Resource Center. Artists and other AMJ participants will have merchandise for sale

  • CARPOOL

    Not only is it fuel-efficient and green of you, it’ll give you the chance to connect with friends and family and free up much-needed parking spaces for fellow AMJ-ers

  • DON’T MISS THE SEMINARS SATURDAY

    The seminars, workshops and plenary sessions start at 9am (registration begins @ 8am). Check out the roster of topics here. The Resource Center will be available too offering books, study guides and other materials plus chances to learn more about organizations working on justice and famine relief. Don’t miss out!

  • BRING A FRIEND/MAKE A FRIEND

    Art Music Justice provides a great opportunity to invite a friend to an engaging weekend of music, art and conversation centered on the need for justice. Our hope too is that new friendships will be formed and others deepened as conversations continue beyond the weekend.

We can’t wait to see you!
