Here we go with “More Street for All”, a new project by the Jug Band Colline Metallifere in collaboration with whoever wants to collaborate

After the seriese of Zoom interviews held between February and the first week-end of March on culture, environment, open innovation, and music, here is a new proposal from the international and inter-generational collective bringing you “concerPTs” since 2018, with a base camp in the Tuscan Metalliferous Hills and activities here and there.

In past years we did have occasional gigs or jam sessions on the street. However, with the beginning of the warm season in 2021, with the Jug Band Colline Metallifere (and many others) we decided to organize a bit more our street presence. In Italy this implies requesting a permit from the local city administration (Comune), to be combined with national-level permits depending on the type of performance. In addition to this, since Italy is renown and loved because of the diverisity of its territory, the local permits tend to vary from one Comune to the other.

This year we were about to start laying out the plans for another season “on the street”, but we spent a little time considering how to improve the process we followed last year. And how to help a sector which has been strongly impacted in 2020-2021, where the energies available now should be dedicated more to perform and to create, than to spend time on institutional web sites, trying to find the right form to download.

To this end, we have assembled a small but determined editorial board, currently composed by the core members of the JBCM collective (Dario Canal, Simone Sandrucci, Wolfgang Scheibe e Jack O’Malley alias pibinko), together with Peter Barbers in Bologna and Andy Rocchi in Grosseto. In the coming weeks we will be extending the information which we collected last year in relation to Southern Tuscany, and we will be sharing it. You may consult the list/atlas of locations from this page: https://www.pibinko.org/jugbandcollinemetallifere/more-street-for-all/, and you may find the instructions to participate and support the project on this page.

At the time of writing the atlas is more like a short list, but as soon as we reach the critical mass required to create a useful map, with will publish it in a few clicks (thanks to pibinko’s mapping tricks).
