The Manifesto Music Mentorship Programme is a 10-week intensive for aspiring music industry professionals designed to teach, through practical experience, the fundamentals of conceptualising, recording and releasing a body of recorded work. The objective of the programme is to create 3 to 5 original songs, exploring themes related to identity and coming-of-age in the new millennium. This will happen in tandem with second cohort of mentees in a juvenile detention centre New York City.
