MusicDetour is 100% not-for-profit. In order to expand the DFW Local Music Archive, we need to raise funds. We hope to raise $5,000 in donations by the end of 2016 to fund two student workers at the University of Texas at Arlington for the Spring 2017 semester. One student worker will work on web-development (coding the website). The other student will work on collecting music contributions and entering them in our digital archive.

Students will be able to place their work on the website in their portfolio, and demonstrate to employers that they have real-world experience. Read More …
