the guerillaclassics think & do tank

The Think & Do Tank is a circle of voices that provides strategic guidelines and helps to initiate, facilitate, and decide on projects for the overall programme. The collective contributes ideas and programme direction that feed into questions that are relevant locally and globally to diverse audiences in order to achieve guerillaclassics’ mission to question the western classical music canon and foster a broader view on how artists from different musical backgrounds can create new ways of artistic sharing together. 

Working at the intersection of disruption and discomfort, guerillaclassics constantly strives to create space for reflection and growth as part of the collective process. To this end, the Think & Do Tank helps the guerillaclassics team to think in expansive ways. The Thinkers & Doers have and give agency. Through each member’s knowledge, skills and extensive network, the Thinkers & Doers work with the core team to think and do.
