This year, 8 young people from El Puente's Williamsburg Leadership Center underwent a two-week creative exchange with a group of young people from Cape Town, South Africa, lunder the guidance of artists Kyla-Rose Smith and Hannah Loewenthal in collaboration with Found Sound Nation and National Sawdust. The young people from each city collected sounds from their neighborhoods to compose their own found sound art projects and exchange their work with each other virtually.
