As many of us take up the challenge of pursuing meaningful social change through music, we are discovering deeper and more diverse connections within our communities. How can we continue to push our work to the forefront of social justice, and help to make those communities better places for all? Using the frame of artistic citizenship, this panel will explore the range of approaches through which musicians are offering leadership in community building, advocacy, placemaking, education, outreach, and public service, and will also look at how those approaches might evolve in the future.
