Young creatives of today will have new opportunities with Today at Apple Creative Studios. On Tuesday (June 22) Apple announced the launch of the new program that will first debut in Los Angeles, California and Beijing, China.
Today at Apple Creative Studios will be a mentorship program that offers professional industry skills, creative resources and access to Apple products to members of underrepresented communities throughout the globe. Apple’s new program is a necessity, and is highly beneficial for any young creative that is looking to advance their creative arts skills.
Music, film, photography, and art and design are the areas that Today at Apple Creative Studios will focus on, enabling individuals with an opportunity to have a genuine artistic education.
“Creativity and access to education are core values for Apple, so we are absolutely thrilled to kick off Today at Apple Creative Studios in Los Angeles and Beijing and to bring this meaningful program to several more cities this year,” said Deirdre O’Brien, Apple’s senior vice president of Retail + People said in a press release. “Building on our long history of using stores as a venue to host local artists to educate and inspire, Creative Studios is one more way we’re providing free arts education to those who need it most.”
Chris Brown showed support for the creation of Today at Apple Creative Studios, sharing a screenshot of the Apple announcement to his IG story with fire emojis over the screenshot. Maybe Chris Brown posting about the program means he’ll be a mentor. We all can hope right?
The program will be 8- 12 weeks long, consisting of mentorship, hands-on training, access to industry knowledge, and more. Additionally, Today at Apple Creative Studios will also collaborate with community partners.
As of now Music Forward Foundation and Inner-City Arts and Social Justice Learning Institute and China Foundation for Poverty Alleviation and China Social Entrepreneur Foundation are Apple’s current community partners.
Today at Apple Creative Studios is currently only available in Los Angeles and Beijing, however will be accessible in Bangkok, London, Chicago, and Washington, D.C later this year.
