As followers of APJ may know, this fall we are scheduled to open the newest division of the Artists Institute in Jacmel! The Audio Institute – a partnership with Cine Institute and We are the World Foundation – will offer a tuition free, 2-year intensive training program to aspiring Haitians in all aspects of music production and audio engineering, as well as the business skills needed to flourish in the local and international music industries. Students will have opportunities to take advantage of partnerships with industry professionals and a wealth of local musical talent while studying at the brand new campus and working in a state-of-the-art recording studio. Our objective is to provide Haiti’s talented youth the skills they need to succeed both at home and globally while contributing to the growth of the local economy and creative industries.
Needless to say, we’re VERY excited about all this and hope you’ll continue to follow our progress as we bring this amazing dream to life.
