The program is a way for Indigenous youth to be a part of these types of projects and explore their creative side in music.

CAMP president Eliza Doyle told Global News the program is set up to give all Indigenous youth the chance to get involved in music.

The first video they completed featured students from Grade 10 to 12.

“With remote and underserved communities, our goal is to engage these communities in opportunities they may not otherwise be included in,” said Doyle. “And see themselves represented in the broader picture.”
