FARM Virtual Connections

Webinars, Peer Group Sessions and More …

In our ongoing efforts to serve the Midwest folk community, we are offering a variety of webinars including educational panels, workshops and peer group discussions that, in addition to keeping us engaged and feeling connected, will provide helpful tips, tools and resources from experts in our community.

We may be isolated for the time-being, but are not alone. Let’s work together to define our future.

They are FREE to attend

That said, FARM’s ability to raise funds has also been effected. If you are able and willing to help us sustain and grow our Virtual Connections and other programming click below for more info.

We Need You!

FARM is always looking for new ideas of great topics to present to our community. Do you know someone, or are you someone, who has a useful skill or some helpful knowledge that our community might benefit from?


Tuesday Tech Talks

There is SO MUCH new (and old underutilized) technology out there. It’s impossible to cover all in one session and even harder to get into the HOW-TO of it all. So we thought we’d offer very specific DEMO/Q&A sessions on a single tool, resource or piece of software. That thing you heard about that someone else is using? How do they do that??  Nuts and bolts basics from someone who knows.

Open Q&A

We’ve been sharing a LOT of information with you over the past couple of months and thought we’d take a break from new info and offer a full hour of nothing but answering your questions. Whether you’ve had a chance to try out the technology demonstrated or you just want clarification, our past presenters will be on hand and ready to help.

Brianna Lane has your Streamyard and Social Media covered, Brandon O’Sullivan has the low-down on Zoom & Restream, Charlie Mosbrook has the video and green screen know-how and Annie Capps can get talk you through OBS Studio.

Come armed with your questions or type them in the form below. If we don’t know the answers, we’ll do our best to find out (or plan a future tech talk).


Show Me The Money, Part 2

FRIDAY, August 7, 2pm EDT

We are extremely honored to have a powerhouse panel join us for another conversation about money. IN this webinar, our panelists will be sharing creative ways to continue making a living from your music – especially while all touring has come to a screeching halt. We’ll hear from Amber Buist of Out of the Box Management (The Accidentals, May Erlewine, Stephie James, Sweet Water Warblers), Jay Gilbert (music marketing consultant to the likes of Elton John, The Police, Smokey Robinson and more…) and The Accidentals (northern Michigan phenoms!)
