3) NAISA YOUTH INITIATIVE
The NAISA youth education initiative will include the creation of new sound art works by youth through collaboration as an outcome to a series of workshops that teach an understanding of basic sound art, electronics, improvisation and composition. Hands-on workshops will include assembling an electroacoustic instrument (the NAISAtron created by Rob Cruickshank), creating sound art and finally the exploration of sound in space. This initiative is targeted toward youth at high schools, arts centers and community centers. If you are between the ages of of 20 and 25 and are interested in working with youth OR If you are a teacher or run a community centre and are interested in being a part of this youth initiative, please contact Nadene at firstname.lastname@example.org.
