KidGlov, a boutique marketing and advertising agency based out of Lincoln and Omaha, Neb., welcomed the staff from Lincoln Calling to their latest episode of Agency for Change podcast. Guests Spencer Munson, director of Lincoln Calling, and Shannon Clair, development and communications manager, spoke of the annual musical festival, Sept. 22-25, in Lincoln, Neb., and the organization’s initiatives to advance art, music and entertainment.
“It was great to sit down with the staff of Lincoln Calling to discover more about this fantastic organization,” said Lyn Wineman, host of the Agency for Change podcast and president and chief strategist at KidGlov. “Music has the incredible ability to connect us all and organizations like Lincoln Calling are making great strides in bringing people together throughout the community.”
Lincoln Calling is an annual nonprofit music and arts festival that has transformed the streets of Lincoln, Neb. since 2004. The group has dedicated itself to showcasing a multitude of genres, artists and disciplines. Since 2016, 60% of the festival’s headliners represent Black, Indigenous, POC and LGBTQ+ communities and today, the festival boasts 50/50 representation between male and female artists.
“Over the last seven years, we’ve decided we wanted to take a different path and be more of a nonprofit service aspect as part of the festival,” said Munson. “So not only providing entertainment, but providing a platform for community conversation, arts engagement and now digital media creation.”
In 2020, the group created outside-the-box programming in response to the pandemic including digital content, online festivals, and community conversation and civic engagement forums. The 2021 Lincoln Calling festival in Sept. will be in-person, significant for the organization and the bands participating.
“We’ve definitely had to pivot in how we’re putting on the festival,” said Claire. The group has made special arrangements including minimizing travel by booking more local performances and ensuring safety of participants and attendees. “This year is all about supporting the artists that have been impacted the most by the last 18 months of the pandemic,” she said.
