INSPIRING CHANGE THROUGH WORDS AND MUSIC

With Holly Near

Writing songs, stories, articles, sermons and speeches about the world we live in can be very challenging and from the listener/reader’s point of view often boring. How do we write so that we clearly express our ideas without rhetoric, without being accusatory, without bumming everyone out so bad they cant get up the morning? Holly discusses the practice of conscious and caring leadership, using our creativity to inspire.

Whether you have been writing songs for years, dabble occasionally for fun, or have never written a song before and would like to learn more about the process, all are welcome at this workshop.

As Holly Near celebrates her first album in three years, Peace Becomes You, she’s building on 40 creative years and 30 recordings. Respected around the world for her music and activism, her joy and passion inspire people to join in her celebration of the human spirit. Equally compelling at her shows or through your speakers, her music fully engages listeners in the world around them. Holly has made a career speaking to anyone in the world who believes in peace, justice, and feminism, a wonderful spectrum of humanity.

The workshop will be at 10 a.m. Saturday, August 12th at the festival grounds.

Cost for the workshop is $25 and the money goes to support Entrada’s Legacy Program to keep bringing new artists and women’s music pioneers to the festival. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds.
