It's in your hands. You have the power to create space for music and youth in your community. This book is your toolkit, your road map; your survival guide. Collecting the knowledge and insights of organizers & activists from successful projects big and small, from inner cities to small towns, hiphop to indie rock, youth centers to radical DIY collectives, it's everything you need to get started.
Part history and part how-to, In Every Town uses a group of amazing organizations to highlight some of the most important factors in starting all-ages spaces and youth music organizations, from finding the right space, to building community relationships, to grassroots promotion & marketing. Accompanying the book is a free downloadable soundtrack providing a window into homegrown music communities nationwide.
