As a community group how would you want to convey your message or express what you do if you had a full band at your disposal?
In 2018 Pittonkatonk will launch its Environmental Impact Experience that partners local non-profit organizations working on issues ranging from clean air, clean water, immigration, displacement, and social justice with local performers to create new collaborative works that will be featured at the May Day Picnic on May 5, 2018.
This project will connect 3 local organizations with a facilitator and band to create a performance that conveys the mission of the organization. This project will work in three ways.
- First initial meetings between the band, a facilitator, and the organizations to review the mission and vision. The role of the facilitator is to help brainstorm and break through the surface to help create an impactful message and performance.
- Second stage is rehearsal. The band and organization will work together from March to May composing and rehearsing the piece. Documentation of this program will be important element.
- Third component is the actual performance, documentation, and audience response at Pittonkatonk. We will ask that the documentarian interview members of the performance and the audience to gauge audience response then compile this into a short video both can use for their purposes.
