Project440_1.jpg

Member // Project 440

Engages student musicians in educational programs that teach them to use music as a tool to create opportunities for themselves and to give back to their communities. Project 440 is unique with their programming not focusing on developing musicianship. They don’t teach music. Instead, their creative youth development approach uses a shared love of music from any genre and the skills inherent in being a musician as a jumping off point to strengthen identity, build community and ultimately help young people develop competencies they need to thrive.

Upcoming Events: Project 440’s College Fair for Musicians, November 11.

APIARY_0.jpg

Member // Apiary Magazine

Founded in 2009, APIARY Magazine is an all-volunteer, free literary magazine published for and by Philadelphians. APIARY aims to connect and inspire Philadelphians through the power of their own words. They publish in print and online on a varying schedule. (And they always dance.)

This Fall, they are asking our submitters to take stock of their place in a city's complicated, collective memory: How do generations of lived experience collide, connect, cycle back and overlap in your day? For more details about upcoming submissions, see Apiary’s submission page.
