Open lab is a free after school program for musicians/artists ages 14 - 20 that are interested in music production, song writing & artist development. Open Lab is facilitated by local professional musicians that can provide you with direct knowledge and guidance that can contribute to your growth as an inspiring musician. Open Lab 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. If you are passionate about creating and networking, Youth on Record’s Open Lab is an inclusive community that welcomes you.
