Open Lab in-person programming 2020
Youth on Record is excited to announce that we will have limited in-person programming at our Youth Media Studio. Due to the contamination risk of COVID-19 we will be having a limited number of youth per day. 
Open lab is a free program for musicians/artists that are interested in producing music, song writing, recording songs, audio engineering and playing musical instruments. Our Youth Media Studio is a safe space for youth to strengthen their creative skills and collaborate with a community of like minded individuals. Our goal is to encourage self liberatory practices through community dialogue, self expression through art, and mentorship.

Where: Youth on Record. Address: 1301 W 10th Ave Denver, CO 80204

What to expect with in-person programming
What to expect 

Upon registering for Open Lab, each participant will be placed into a cohort of up to 9 youth; each cohort will have a designated day of the week during which the facilities and facilitators will be available to them. Each day, upon arriving at Open lab, participants will check in with a staff member to have their temperature taken, and to receive their daily snacks and supplies. 

All open-lab participants will be asked to wear a mask and gloves while in the space. We ask that all participants wash their hands prior to arrival, and maintain social distancing practices while in the space--this includes maintaining a distance of at least 6-feet from other participants, sitting in designated seats and following all safety protocol requests made during open lab.
