Apple has announced the “Today at Apple Creative Studios” program, a global initiative aimed to provide career-building mentorship to underrepresented communities across the globe. It will also help in professional industry skills training, accessing creative resources, and Apple’s full product lineup of iPhone, iPad, and Mac.
According to Apple, Creative Studios will launch first in Los Angeles and Beijing, followed by Bangkok, London, Chicago, and Washington, D.C. later this year. Apple said it will work hand-in-hand with nonprofit community organizations to connect youth with mentors and established artists.
Today at Apple Creative Studios in Los Angeles:
From June 26 to July 22, celebrate the opening of Apple Tower Theatre in downtown Los Angeles and expand your creative range. You’ll learn techniques from the LA artists breaking new ground in music, art, and design. Join free sessions in beat making, songwriting, and visual storytelling on iPhone and iPad. Sign up to take part.
The Today at Apple Creative Studios program will promote creative passion in areas such as music, film, photography, and art and design. It will be available to young people who face barriers to meaningful arts education. Across eight to 12 weeks of programming, mentors will take participants through a curriculum of hands-on sessions and provide ongoing feedback on participants’ creative projects, in collaboration with Apple and community partners.
The program will also offer sessions to the public that would be led by the inspiring artists who are engaged in providing mentorship experiences in Creative Studios. Anyone can register for these sessions at apple.com/today.
