Following the Common Field Convening’s Saturday sessions, Public Media Institute (PMI) presents a series of experimental after-party events to help gather far-flung attendees. Concurrent online social spaces and performances via Twitch & Zoom will foster the kinds of connections and conversations that emerge organically after a day of gathering IRL. Concerts, games, break-out party rooms and special guests await in a dynamic experience guided by Lumpen’s Jeremiah Chiu and Team Precariat’s Brandon Alvendia. presents live concerts as a multi-city connector, bringing together musicians from across the country as attendees digest the learning and challenges surfaced at the Convening. Join Public Media Institute’s own WLPN 105.5 FM community radio station as it expands to offer live streaming concerts, interviews, participatory advice shows...and more!

Featuring Performances by:
8:00pm CDT: Pre-show Set by DJ OBS
8:30pm CDT: Stephie's Castle (Stephanie Smith)
9:00pm CDT: Patrick Shirioshi
9:30pm CDT: Spectralina (Dan Bitney & Selina Trepp)
10:00pm CST: Lil' Jürg Frey (Dicky Bahto, Erika Bell, Morgan Gerstmar, Stephanie Smith) introduces experimental art structures into the emergent live media space of internet streaming - playing with the conventions of conventions, team-building, forced creativity, managerial oversight, employee optimization through mindfulness and "fun" in the workplace. Office casual.

Finally, Zoom becomes a public hang out space and experimental party zone. Using the Convening’s robust Zoom infrastructure, break-out room roulettes, DJ sets, cliquing off and cocktail parties will erupt as participants endeavor to transform a professional platform into a site of leisure and fun. Maybe it's possible!
