Colorado Drums Forward is an artful communication campaign to help all Coloradans gain a sense of community and solidarity during this time of social distancing. The idea is to use the concept of a “drum circle” to allow individuals to participate in a singular event. It is a way to non-verbally communicate with family and neighbors around the state. The performance centers around percussion instruments but may include non-percussion instruments. Practically anything can be used to make noise such as cans, buckets, boxes, etc. The campaign is being put forward by Dazzle, the Colorado Business Committee for the Arts (CBCA), and Colorado Creative Industries.
“Drumming supports individuals, families, and communities during times of joy, sadness and change. As we drum together the rhythm can bring us closer to one another with respect and courage as we move towards healing wounds and restoring hope.” (www.project-resiliency.org)
