Surviving and Thriving in the Streaming Era

A presentation and conversation with Don White

DATE: June 12, 2PM EDT/1pm CDT

Don has been hosting weekly forums via Zoom since mid-April. Each week he shows attendees what new methods he’s been using to not only survive but to actually thrive in this new weird virtual world. After that everyone is encouraged to ask questions and to share any new approaches, technology or money making ideas they are using or seeing others use.

Building Bridges
A conversation with Rev Robert Jones

DATE: June 5, 2PM EDT/1pm CDT

In response to the horrific violence against the black community and ensuing volitile events of the past week and a half, FARM is hoping to bring some voices together in calm and constructive conversation about how we, as a community of mostly white folks, can do better at building those bridges across race and ethnicity. All are welcome.

For venues and performers in presenting live music in a safe and responsible way presents new challenges.

Show Me The Money

April 29, 2020, 7p est

We are joined by Natalia Zuckerman and Ellis Delaney to talk about monetizing your online presence in two unique ways. Natalia Zuckerman is a singer/songwriter and masterful musician and the brainchild behind “Shut in and Sing” the largest online streaming festival for singer/songwriters hosted on Stageit.com. Ellis Delaney is also a singer/songwriter and a master of community building around her music, especially through Patreon. These two people have a lot to say about these two platforms and how the monetization of streaming live and content creation is helping them, and other artists they work with, make some money and community through this Pandemic.
