AIRsessions Launches New Season of Virtual Music Mentorship Series for Indigenous Youth and Young Adults

Posted on

Facilitator and curator Ila Barker is launching a new season of AIRsessions virtual music mentorship for Indigenous youth and young adults (ages 13-30) in partnership with Canada Council for the Arts.

Now in its fourth season, the online community-building, music-based workshop series will feature guest artists in residence who shares their story, craft, and skills alongside lead mentor Barker. 

"I created this series to address the need for a sustainable, recurring music programming for youth and young adults," says Barker in the AIRsessions program info. "Taking a decolonized approach to music knowledge transfer and interaction the sessions were crafted to allow for vulnerability with the intent to develop a variety of music skills and create art. My long-term vision is to help develop the next generation of Indigenous artists and industry folks and connect them with their peers, industry, and established artists."

The free workshop will take place online at 6-8PM CT. To register and for more information, please contact Barker at
