2:30pm-3:00pm (ET): Doors Open: If you enter the meeting during this time, you will hear Anne’s music and see pictures of her life. Soon, you will receive an invitation to join a “Reception Room” where you’ll hear a bit about how we’re running the event, including the Break Out Rooms, which will be open during this time. If you wish, you may visit the Break Out Rooms and chat informally with the facilitators. All Break Out Rooms will be closed shortly before 3:00pm (ET).
3:00pm-4:30pm (ET): Video Tribute to Anne: The main tribute program features songs, memories, and storytelling from Anne’s family, friends, and musical admirers including Emma’s Revolution, Peter Yarrow, Peggy Seeger, Tom Morello, Holly Near, John McCutcheon, Duncan Phillips, Amy Sue and Daniel Berlin, Chris Chandler, Evan Greer, Bev Grant, Mike Stout, Liz Berlin and many others.
4:30pm-6:00pm (ET): Break Out Rooms: We will move from the pre-recorded program to facilitated breakout rooms in which participants are invited to share memories and songs in real time.
BREAK OUT ROOMS:
We planned seven main Break Out Rooms from approximately 4:30pm-6:00pm (ET). Each room will be facilitated and will have a welcoming and participatory vibe. Topics reflect the many sides of Anne’s life, the communities she touched, and the people who loved her. Participants are free to visit different rooms as they wish.
TECH NOTE: We strongly recommend updating your Zoom Client to the latest version, because the updates since 5.3 make it easier for you to move around among the Break Out Rooms. This 1-minute video explains the simple steps to do this. If you are new to using Zoom for participatory conversations, look at this simple visual tutorial on the basics of muting, unmuting, and chatting, three functions which appear a little differently depending on the type of device you use.

RECORDING THE BREAK OUTS:
Anne's family requested we record all break out rooms for the family to be able to view at a later date. The goal is to create a video archive using the footage we gather. Pre-assigned technicians are recording the sessions with the intention of sharing the recordings privately with the family afterwards. However, your image will not be recorded unless you are speaking and your camera is on. Breakout room conversations will not be livestreamed.
SHARING MEMORIES OF ANNE:
Due to the large number of people registered for this memorial, there is a possibility that not everyone who wishes to share a memory of Anne will be able to do so within the time we are together for this event. Please also consider sharing your memories of Anne (photos/videos/stories) to the memorial board that will be presented to Anne's family.
