Open Lab

Open Lab is a free after school program for young creatives ages of 14 through 20 who are interested in exploring music production, song recording, music lessons and artist development. Our program is facilitated by local professional musicians who are committed to helping participants grow as aspiring artists.

At Open Lab, we foster a supportive and inclusive community that values self-expression and creativity. Through community dialogue and mentorship, we encourage self-liberatory practices that empower young creatives to leverage their inherent skills.

If you enjoy creating, and connecting to a like-minded community, we welcome you to join us. Registration is required!
