Free Write Sound & Vision provides full-service sound reinforcement and production support for all sizes and styles of
events. Our expert project managers and technicians work closely with our partners to execute their vision and offer world-class
experiences for their audiences. Unlike similar services, Free Write S&V is committed to social justice and employment equity in
the arts industry. We hire and train alumni of Free Write Arts & Literacy and other criminalized young adults with barriers to
employment. We support them as they make their way into an arts industry that is in need of a diverse, young workforce. Participants begin as apprentices working their way through a customized certification program to become production assistants. They then have the opportunity to advance to positions such as lead technician, studio engineer, DJ, customer support specialist, and more.
