Pyramind has been an important partner paving the way for Youth Art Exchange’s effort to build pathways for our young people to higher education in the arts. Pyramind is a music production school which provides immersive learning experiences that accelerate the careers of music producers, sound designers, composers, audio engineers, and electronic music artists. Pyramind has presented workshops, DJed events, and provided tours of their facilities for Youth Art Exchange students. They are an important partner, particularly for out Digital Beatmaking class as our students have gone to tour the facilities, meet the instructors, and have gotten to interact with them at the San Francisco Youth Arts Summit. Pyramind has led interactive workshops and DJed at the Summit as well as provided resources to our students around pursuing a degree in digital music and production. Looking forward, we hope to use our partnership with Pyramind to continue to build more connections with higher education institutions and create more opportunities for exchange.
Youth Art Exchange is proud to partner with arts organizations from across San Francisco and believes that our programming and ability to lift up the work of our youth is made stronger through collaborations. We’ll be highlighting some of these partnerships each week – stay tuned!
