AIRsessions is a free music workshop series for youth curated by Manitoba Singer-Songwriter Ila Barker. Each session is led by Ila and a guest artist over Zoom, and both participants and artists are invited to share their own music, stories, and music biz tips in a fun and safe creative forum.

Priority registration is given to Indigenous youth aged 13 to 25 – other participants are welcome if space allows.

This series is presented as part of the NAC Music Alive Program: Manitoba, in partnership with the sākihiwē festival, Music for Life, and Indigenous Music Development Program at Manitoba Music and Canada Council for the Arts.
