Since its start in 2006, NEXMAP has opened minds and produced profound and intimate artistic experiences. With the help of our donors, we have:
- Showcased over 55 internationally renowned artists from the Bay Area, Mexico, France, Japan, Switzerland and Canada at 39 different events,
- Educated hundreds of under-served youth in its Inside/Out outreach initiative, by offering free admission and post-event conversations with musicians and composers, and providing unique hands-on workshops to demystify new technologies.
- Nurtured young professionals through our state-wide Recording Award for California Composers, and our Media Workshops that develop and support the next generation of creators.

On July 9th, educators and makers of all ages joined together to explore expressive electronics for Hack Your Notebook Day. With 17 participating sites across the country and over 340 participants in schools, museums and libraries experienced first-hand how using creative prompts, artistic practices and applied STEM concepts in a social setting can produce deep engagement and real learning. We spent the day at San Francisco Public Library, hosted by Teen Center Manager, Cathy Cormier and were joined remotely by Jie Qi of the MIT Media Lab and Chibitronics, Paul Oh of the National Writing Project and Melissa Techman of Abermarle County Libraries.
