Remix is a group dedicated to training young people in the arts and cultural industries in order for them to take their passions and turn them into viable economic revenue streams and careers. We are dedicated to creating social change by working both inside and outside of the mainstream systems. The Remix Project is a youth-led, urban arts organization focused on the individual while building a strong and healthy community and industry. Working with “at-risk youth” in the city of Toronto, the program encompasses three different streams including recording arts, creative arts, and the art of business. We provide resources for young people to identify articulate and work towards their own personal, artistic, educational, and career goals.
About The Remix Project
Remix is open from 3-9pm Monday to Friday. We have a facility that includes a recording studio, two production rooms, a video editing suite, a graphic design suite, photography studio, a business centre, boardroom, 7 offices, two bathrooms and a kitchen. Youth work with their program leaders and use the facility and resources to work on their six-month plans and accomplish their day-to-day goals such as recording, working on business plans, photography, graphic design, etc. Remix holds monthly mandatory workshops, update meetings, field-trips, training sessions, and more. We also have a mentorship program, where participants are linked with industry professionals to help assist them with career goals, give them advice, share resources and networks and help develop their exit strategies for when they graduate the Remix program.
