Info on the camp:
Portland Meet Portland's Immigrant and Refugee Youth Music Camp provides students (ages 13 to 17) with free, high-quality and culturally responsive music education and mentorship from some of the most respected musicians in the local Portland music scene. Students will gain invaluable encouragement and experience in expressing themselves musically and artistically to their peers and their communities, and they’ll learn how to collaborate creatively with each other. The goal of our camp is to decrease isolation and find new ways to connect youth from inside and outside of mainstream American culture, allowing room for these students to carve out their own expressive safe space and to share it in their own creative terms.
No musical experience is necessary for youth to participate. By the end of the camp, campers will know how to play their instrument of choice and perform an original song, at a showcase concert, live in front of friends, family, and community members on the evening of July 20th.
The Music Camp will be held at Franklin High School, Monday, July 16th, through Friday, July 20th, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.
