What are the boundary-spanning ways in which community partners, practitioners in the field, and community members think about, define, and are motivated by civic and community engagement (CCE)? How we define CCE influences our work, our community partnerships, and the lens through which we understand critical issues. In this session we will listen to songs selected by participants, dialogue about creating meaning through music, and bring participants closer together in a shared understanding of CCE. We will do this by: 1) Picking a song - something that speaks to how you think of civic and/or community engagement, or a song you were exposed to at an important time in your life, or one that you feel defines you or your generation's way of thinking about CCE. 2) Showing up - share your stories and listen to others share stories about their song and perspective. We will play songs for the group, have participants share the meaning behind their selection, and then engage in conversations about how meaning-making through music can strengthen the work we do by sharing it in different forms to different audiences. 3) Enjoying the music - all participant selections will be combined into a mix tape (let's be real...it's a playlist) to be shared electronically.
