In line with its commitment to moving music forward, Audiomack has donated $5,000 to Youngtrepreneurs, a social youth-impact organization geared towards creating opportunities for African creatives to be seen, heard, and compensated through their various creative vocational-led workshops.
The donation will support a four-day workshop scheduled to take place from July 15-18, 2021 at BBnz Live in Accra, Ghana. The workshop will be geared towards the technical development of creatives in music production, and will cover topics focusing on music production, building client relationships, publishing rights, royalties, intellectual property protection, and more.
“At Audiomack, our mission is to move music forward and this means empowering the next generation of creatives,” said Jason Johnson, VP of Marketing and Brand Strategy for Audiomack. “We are constantly finding ways to give back to communities where we operate while supporting the future of the music industry and we are thankful for the opportunity to realize this goal through this partnership with Youngtrepreneurs.”
