Open Lab is a free after school program for youth ages of 14 through 20 who are interested in exploring music production, song recording, music lessons and artist development. The program is facilitated by local professional musicians who are dedicated to providing participants with the knowledge and guidance they need to grow as aspiring artists.

Open Lab is a supportive and inclusive community that encourages self-expression and creativity through art, as well as promotes self-liberatory practices through community dialogue and mentorship. If you are passionate about creating and networking with like-minded individuals, we welcome you to join us at Open Lab.
