As a kickoff to the Northern Rockies Bioneers Conference held in Bozeman, Montana this week, a TERRA crew spent an afternoon with musician and filmmaker Michael Franti of Spearhead. Franti’s “consciousness-raising” resonates on both the political and environmental front and he combines improvisation and activism to spread his message across the globe. Later that same evening, Franti brought the house down when he played the Wilson Auditorium in Bozeman and reminded us that inclusion, not exclusion is the only way to bring about political change. The Northern Rockies Bioneers Conference is one of over twenty Bioneers groups nation wide, which meet every year to bring together progressive communities and provide resources, tools, and inspiration to build sustainable, culturally-rich, active, and well-networked communities. Stay tuned to TERRA for a closer look at the Bioneers conference here in Bozeman, as we podcast all the action over the next few days.
