Digital Music & Culture Studio at MACLA
Building upon a long history of neighborhood youth arts programming, MACLA teamed up in 2011 with The Black Eyed Peas Peapod Foundation and the Adobe Foundation to start the Peapod Adobe Youth Voices Academy (PAYVA). This model enriched MACLA's original platform by increasing its regional and national visibility as well as providing additional resources for teaching, production, and performance.
This year, continuing on the success of its three years as PAYVA, MACLA is pleased to launch the brand-new DMC Studio at MACLA. DMC Studio is a free arts education program in San Jose, CA, dedicated to mentoring Silicon Valley youth (ages 13-19) in 21st-century skill development through multimedia production. The highly selective, year-round program focuses on a range of disciplines, including professional video and sound production, visual and performing arts, and photography. Summer and after-school workshops range from individual to group-based projects and are taught by experienced industry professionals in a state-of-the-art studio environment.
In addition, the studio provides youth with a venue for the exploration of relevant social, personal and community issues. It encourages youth to engage in community dialogue, develop their artistic voices, become cultural innovators, and discover how art is used for social change. Because of its latest digital technology offerings, a variety of workshops, and multidisciplinary, hands-on approach to digital literacy, DMC Studio provides youth with artistic, technical, and practical work skills and experience to prepare them for college and beyond.
Finally, and also building upon a long history of community arts engagement, DMC Studio is pleased to announce that it is open to digital media producers and artists with professional recording/filming studio needs.
Students from any skill level are welcomed to join our program at any time during the year.
