"Along the Way" on Broadway
The work of the Oakland-based artists collaborative known as ©ause Collective was projected nightly during Sundance. If you missed it on the wall, catch it here and see how engaging the moment as we move through our cities can engage our senses and sensibilities day-by-day, along the way.
Day of song
If one listens to the voice of Hugh Masekela, who has been called the father of African jazz and South Africa's musical ambassador to the world, we learn that "musicians have been in the vanguard of the quest for freedom, carrying the torch and leading songs of liberation."
With our shared desire to change the world, and to advance the causes of social, environmental and economic justice everywhere, we created another way you can work in the Museum.
In 2008, the Temporary Museum of Permanent Change in collaboration with music students throughout the world hosted the first annual Day of Song, a day devoted to the role of music as an instrument of change.
On June 20, 2008 we gathered the voices of people on every continent, in every city, village and camp, to sing or make music in any form. One whole day of song devoted to our common humanity, using the universal language of song, was our simple way to express our desire to bring moments of change to all people and places in need.
According to Masekela, "We need to keep singing the songs of freedom. If we can achieve this mammoth quest," he added, "the future of human rights will be illuminated to such a level of sparkle as to render their destruction impossible."
