2020 Virtual Great Labor Arts Exchange

Thank you for attending the 2020 GLAE!

In the words of Mother Jones, “Pray for the dead and fight like hell for the living!” And so we shall ~ with cultural expressions of solidarity to lift spirits and inspire action.

This year we went digital, using Zoom video conferencing and live streaming. Registration was also on a sliding scale to choose the payment option that works for any budget.

We were able to listen, sing-a-long and most importantly, share the communal joy of being together in these difficult times. Thank you to our over 200 participants, with attendees from all over the United States, Canada, and even Mexico!

Great Labor Arts Exchange Contest was held June 20th, live on Facebook!
