The event will kick off at 10:00 a.m. from the steps of New York City Hall with a “Bed-In” featuring Ringo Starr, Jeff Bridges, iconic rock photographer and Morrison Hotel Gallery co-owner Henry Diltz, Mayor Bill de Blasio, and Speaker of the NYC Council Corey Johnson. The group will come together to inspire student activism in honor of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s legendary non-violent protests in support of world peace.

Apart from his history-making career as a Beatle and beyond, the late John Lennon was known for his work to promote unity through art and music – from holding bed-ins to bringing together a talented group of artists to record “Give Peace a Chance.”

The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus rolled out in 1998 with the intention of continuing that legacy of love. On September 13th, photographer Henry Diltz is proud to be taking part in the annual Come Together NYC event featuring the John Lennon Bus.

Hosted by technology company OWC and co-hosted by Sleep Club, the Lennon Bus travels to underprivileged areas in the U.S. in order to mentor students and offer them the hands-on experience of creating music and digital media in a top-of-the-line recording and production studio.

The mission of The Lennon Bus program is to provide students access to music, audio, video, and broadcast technology. As the primary bus tours the U.S., its sister bus travels throughout Europe, bringing media production educational opportunities to children around the world.
