The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) awarded Youth Radio a $40 thousand grant to launch the Remix Your Life Lab, a project that partners young people with transmedia journalist to develop and experiment with new forms of hands-on arts learning, creative production, artistic performance and media storytelling. Youth Radio students will co-produce media content that merges original artistic expression with journalism and sound design in innovative ways. The Remix Your Life Lab will empower young people to employ the multimedia training Youth Radio provides to create art, and enable journalists to utilize art and music in news reporting.
Youth Radio is one of 895 nonprofit organizations nationwide to receive an NEA Art Works grant. Art Works grants support the creation of art that meets the highest standards of excellence: public engagement with diverse and excellent art, lifelong learning in the arts, and enhancing the livability of communities through the arts. The NEA received 1,528 eligible Art Works applications, requesting more than $75 million in funding.
