The FRSWV Teen Music and Tech Festival were created last year in conjunction with Jr Music Exec and presented during Philly Tech Week. After working several years on various STEM programs I wanted to do something different that could catch the excitement of students looking for alternative options to approaching possible STEM careers as well as those students that want to be involved in the more technical or business side of music.
The program went through several names before we settled on FRSHWV (Fresh Wave). The idea is that we are creating opportunities for access and collaboration with a fresh wave of young innovators and artists.
On May 5th, 2019, we held our first event and it was a huge success. So much so that the event was picked up for a second year.
UPDATE! The FRSHWV FEST has been renewed for 2020!
