CodeNEXT Sound Check

Mon.-Sat., Nov. 16-21

The CodeNEXT Sound Check combines several public events: an opening ceremony and presentation on Monday evening, and a closing event on Saturday, and in between Open Studio sessions on Tuesday through Friday, where "informal interaction allows designated studio ambassadors to guide visitors through the studio and facilitate questions and observe the team at work." Each day concludes with a Block Party/"Pin-Up" session, when people can view workshop results, listen to live music, and eat at a rotating selection of food trucks. Plus there are Educational Brown Bag Lunches (and one breakfast) each day, on different topics. See more info at or Sound Check will take place at the Linc (formerly Lincoln Center), 6406 N. I-35.
