COMMON is free to attend, but encourages sustainable support through collective and artist subscriptions to channels on Currents. Subscribe to a collective or channel on Currents and unlock special features on COMMON.
COMMON is one of the key tools of the Currents project. It is an experimental, open events space consisting of multiple rooms curated by artists and collectives working in music and visual art around the world.
Guests can explore the space and move from room to room, connecting with other listeners, artists and collectives in the process. Guests who support collectives or artists on COMMON can start their own private room with other guests and unlock secret spaces and content.
Events at the venue will run regularly throughout the year. Features include A/V dual-livestreams, workshops, chat rooms, video chats, digital art, interviews, secret spaces, and community streams. Rooms curated by Currents community members will run side-by-side with individual performances in the COMMON room that any artist can submit and participate in.
Artists and DJs can also submit their own recorded audiovisual sets while the event is running, to be played in the COMMON Room.
Currents (https://a.currents.fm/) is an ongoing project to create broad support structures for the global music community. Our small team is majority people of color and/or women/non-binary, based in countries all over the world.
The Currents project provides a set of tools through which any member of the music community can create their own digital space.
We are committed to doing things differently: directly prioritizing and empowering grassroots music communities around the world, in a sustainable way that supports the fabric of creative scenes.
