Our Services
N'we Jinan is a non-profit organization that travels to Indigenous communities and schools across North America providing educational services in the music and art sector. We offer creative solutions in the extra-curricular, in-school and post-secondary sectors.

Mobile Production Studio

The mobile production studio offers participants an experience in song recording, sound mixing, beat making and music video production. The program is aimed to create an environment where youth can express themselves musically and creatively under the guidance of a professional music producer.

Song Recording Package

Participants learn about sound recording, music production, songwriting, voice and performance. Within the studios’ residency, original songs are created containing messages that focus on cultural identity, language, struggle, love and self acceptance.

Song/Video Package

This package gives participants the opportunity to write and record 1 original song in a professional music studio setting. As an extension to this process, participants will plan and execute the production of a music video that will support the original song created.

Training/Studio Plant Package

This package gives participants the opportunity to enter into a training process that will develop their knowledge and abilities in sound design / recording, beatmaking, songwriting, producing, mixing & mastering and music program facilitation. The end result of this training session is the official opening of a community based recording studio program.

Integrative Arts Program

This integrative arts program offers two – 5 week creative residencies per school which take place in an after school or extracurricular setting. The school representative will work with our team to coordinate and schedule these residencies in order to match the school interests to available artists.
