Summer Meltdown Festival
What Is the Summer Meltdown Art & Music Festival?
The Summer Meltdown Autism Awareness/Acceptance Art & Music Festival is a one day music and arts festival produced by program consumers. The Summer Meltdown is a cumulative project due at the end of the program which allows consumers the opportunity to practice and practically apply vocational/work skills taught throughout the YIC Program in a community-based setting. The project allow consumers the ability to showcase their talents, which will be added to their written/digital/video resume. Adult Program consumers, with the support of direct service staff, submit their digital resume to music/entertainment industry professionals as they transition into their internship programs.
To create the Summer Meltdown, consumers work alongside industry professionals and in many cases, are mentored directly by the industry’s most elite promoters, bands, artists, media publicists, managers, booking agents, photographers, security, catering, and more.
The Summer Meltdown is only made possible through the generousity of our corporate sponsors and donors. To learn more about how you can help and the benefits of corporate sponsorships and donating to our program, contact us.
