Next Step is hosting our first Studio Campference! On Friday, November 22nd to Sunday, November 24th, ten Next Step participants who are passionate about writing, singing, public speaking and advocacy will come together and work with us to create a Song-Story portfolio that shares what really matters AND gives meaning to young people living with cancer, HIV and rare genetic disorders. Our new Studio Campference will have similar programmatic goals as our Song Studio music therapy program.
OH! And did we mention that Kimberly will be directing the Studio Campference?! This is Kimberly’s first time in the role as Campference Director and we couldn’t be happier for her!
Kimberly’s goal during the Studio Campference is to write and record a studio version of a Community Song in our recording studio at Next Step in Cambridge, MA. Our Campference attendees will choose the community song, create art, narrative, and media to bring the song’s message to life. We will publish this portfolio on our YouTube Channel and website once fully produced!
As a production crew, everybody will meet with Kimberly individually for a few one-on one sessions to figure out their awesome contributions.
