Call for Performing Artists

Call for Visual Artists

My Sound Future, Vol. 2

My Sound Future is a career expo that motivates youth in underserved communities to see that it is possible to have creative careers. Created by Ferchil Ramos, of RISE San Diego, the expo will show attendees it takes more than the performer on the stage to have a good performance. It takes a community. You need technicians, managers, marketers, graphic designers, and more. The audience doesn’t realize how many roles it takes to pull off a great show - and each role is integral. How would a star shine without people setting the stage?
