Apple bringing back ‘Made in LDN’ creative sessions in new online format
Apple is bringing back its “Made in LDN” creative sessions this summer, providing young people in London with a range of educational sessions and a creative outlet.
The program launched last year in partnership with London Mayor Sadiq Khan to offer bi-weekly workshops at Apple Stores across the capital to teach skills such as coding, film-making, music production, and other subjects to young Londoners in an effort to help tackle the rising number of youth involved in gang crime.
This year’s sessions will be run online in collaboration with the creative arts youth organisation Spotlight, a creative arts youth organisation that will deliver creative sessions to give young artists in London the opportunity to learn about the music industry from experts.
British rappers Aitch and Nadia Rose, alongside hip hop duo Young T & Bugsey will join in on the sessions, all of which will be curated by DJ Carly Wilford.
The online sessions will be available through July 27 to August 28. Registration opens on July 6 for artists aged 16-25 in the London area, with limited spaces available.
A two-minute video, including a sample of music and the applicant’s creative story, is required as part of the application.
