Drum Circle Facilitators Guild
March 1-3, 2024
Prescott Resort and Conference Center, Prescott, AZ
The Drum Circle Facilitators Guild 19th Annual Conference is a weekend-long professional development event specifically for those using drums and percussion for recreational music making. The symposium-style gathering features presentations by industry leaders on a wide variety of topics including techniques for leading drum circles, business development, folkloric music, program design, and more.
Cultivating Connections is our theme for 2024 and in direct response to feedback from conference attendees. Drum Circle Facilitators work to create connections within the groups we serve through the use of drumming and rhythm. The Annual Conference is the opportunity for Drum Circle Facilitators from around the world to cultivate and deepen our connections to this work and each other.
The 19th Annual Conference is for anyone and everyone who incorporates rhythm and/or drumming into their work; including settings such as:
- Well elderly/seniors
