Amplify Music is a project launched in 2020 with a group of individuals under the umbrella of the Maremel Institute.  This year, the project continues at Rethink Next, a California 501c3 nonprofit corporation.  We endeavor to keep the costs low, and can expand these efforts with your support.

You can donate at the link or QR code above, through PayPal, through Amazon Smile, or contributing via the event Eventbrite link.  We welcome individual contributions, corporate giving, Featured Sponsorships, donated services, and other great support we have been receiving in 2020 and 2021.

Our Mission – Amplify Music

We bring together diverse music leaders and creators online to learn and share from local community response, emergent solutions, and heroic efforts to support local artists, venues, creative communities, and support networks in the challenges of COVID-19 and our future transformations of music communities.


  • Unique practices that may transfer to other areas
  • Ways to learn between great ecosystems and communities of communities
  • New combinations of business and community models – bridges beyond
  • “After” – rebuilding and transforming in recovery and beyond

Our Mission – Rethink Next

Rethink Next is a California non-profit corporation whose dream is to help us create robust local creative communities. . . .together.  We have been working quietly on pilot programs with communities and partners since our founding in August 2018.

Our Core Question: How can we learn together to change our local communities and environments for the better?

2020 and 2021 were powerful opportunities to learn the hard way about local change.  For 2022, Rethink Next is partnering with organizations to understand how Place is changing as we emerge and shift locally, globally, and virtually in how and where we create and collaborate.
