definition of tidriks here

Up to eight composers belonging to specific underrepresented constituencies (women, African Americans, Latinos, jazz musicians, emerging composers over 50, etc) and anyone interested in the issues posed to these groups will come to Boonville, CA for two-day retreats (not including travel days) to make new friends and discuss strategies for increasing diversity in the music workspace. Accepted composers will have the opportunity to share their work and stories with the larger group as well as learn from the experiences of special guests.

Composers will be in shared housing (doubles) and are encouraged to bring their favorite tea. One possible local cultural event and/or outing will be planned. 

In 2019, the spring Tidrik will focus on women composers, and the fall Tidrik will focus on composers of color.
