Center, Pulse, GROOVE!
A weekend-long professional development event specifically for those using drums and percussion for recreational music making. The symposium-style gathering features presentations by industry leaders on a wide variety of topics including techniques for leading drum circles, business development, folkloric music, program design, and more.
In attendance are full-time drum circle facilitators as well as many people using this work in other settings: creative arts and music therapists, social workers and counselors, wellness practitioners, community organizers, music educators, spiritual leaders, event specialists, etc.
The conference is an opportunity to learn from each other and be together in community. Expect full days of presentations that engage your mind and heart that lead to evenings opportunities for jump time (practicing facilitation techniques) and Late Night jam sessions. Expect much music making.
DRUMMM’s founder Jeni Swerdlow will be presenting “Rhythm Reboot: Group Drumming to Release, Reconnect, and Restore Balance” during the conference.
