A person’s life views, triumphs, and struggles can be expressed in song lyrics. When practiced in community, songwriting can be a powerful exercise in consensus building and collective knowledge production. Martha Gonzalez and Quetzal Flores will briefly discuss the collective songwriting process and then engage participants in the process. If you play an instrument, please bring it. But you don't need to be a musician or have any musical abilities to participate.
Martha Gonzalez is a Chicana artivista (artist/activist) musician, feminist music theorist and Assistant Professor in the Intercollegiate Department of Chicana/o Latina/o Studies at Scripps/Claremont College..
Quetzal Flores grew up in social movements as the son of grassroots organizers. Since 1993, he has worked as the founder and musical director of the Grammy® Award-winning East LA Chican@ rock group, Quetzal.
