Ragtag Film Society Community DIY Workshops

Ragtag Film Society is excited to announce our new Community DIY Workshop series! These workshops are designed to provide community members with hands-on experiences within the visual arts, enabling participants to leave with something they've created or having learned a new skill. Leveraging the vast resources of the Fest and Cinema, these workshops will be led by cutting edge filmmakers, artists, musicians, poets, dancers, actors, playwrights, authors, storytellers, and more!

Ragtag Film Society is sponsoring this program in partnership with the Missouri Humanities Council and with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

There's a songwriter lurking somewhere inside you, peeking around corners, wondering if it's safe to come out. Now it is. This workshop is an invitation to let your inner songwriter step into the light!

Over two sessions, you'll work with national musicians Josh Runnels and Carl Banks to write and record a song. During the songwriting process, you'll learn about basic music theory, melodic writing, the basics of lyric writing, song structure and more!

To participate in this workshop, no prior songwriting, singing, or recording experience is necessary! All you need to bring is an open mind, adventurous spirit, love for music, and an instrument. Whether a guitar, trombone, salt shaker, tissue box with rubber bands, or a tambourine, we've got a place for you!

Each attendee will get a digital and CD copy of the collaborative song created during the workshop!
