Shining a positive light on marginalized groups in the entertainment industry (womxn, non-binary, queer, BIPOC), this course provokes both thought and action towards a world with more inclusivity. Participants are empowered to work through internalized oppression and find hope and resilience by using their voice to uplift others.

Meet your Artist Instructor:

Nay Wilkins is a non-binary Filipinx Songwriter and naturalist residing in Austin, TX. Their work in bands Hikes and Adobo ranges from classical folk to emotive experimental electronic with a focus on healthy community building. Over the past ten years they have played shows all across Japan, The UK, and America amassing a dedicated following. When they’re not touring, they’re organizing river clean-ups through Hikes with Hikes, scoring films at their home studio, and working on new ways to bring the community together in positive ways.

About MFML Virtual Summer experience:

The Mother Falcon Music Lab is excited to bring our programming online!

With so much to learn and share, we’re ensuring participants are able to stay in the moment and centered on content. Each Artist Instructor is supported by an additional instructor in the zoom room to monitor needs, helping to field questions and assist with technical issues.

For any youth in this course, we are offering a virtual Chill Room – a spot where you can play a game, relax from class or talk anything out with Mr. Michael!

For adults across MFML programming, we are offering a group forum where you can post up questions and comments, connect with other peers/adults, and share ideas and projects!

The unique content of this course has been developed by experienced artists and instructors in a ground up, collaborative environment. We are passionate about what we do and the experiences we share with our community!
