LADRIDOS will be available for Spanish speaking people living in America whilst OVERTONES will support those in the Los Angeles area, with a priority to help underserved communities.

OVERTONES is also partnering with the new non-profit grant system named The Rising Artist Foundation meaning that each participant can receive funds to cover health insurance costs for the duration of the workshop.

These workshops are also said to include special guests to support the learning process.

For LADRIDOS, Jaar is working with Chilean electronic music publication Grieta which will also handle the industry-focused sessions, centering on the question: ¿Qué significa ser de aquí? (What does it mean to be from here?) with OVERTONES.

To enter the grant program apply for OVERTONES here before May 13 or LADRIDOS here before June 13.
