Hip Hop JAM (Not Bang!) is a community festival driven to show youth and families that hip hop can be a positive creative influence for individuals and communities.
The goal of the event is to inspire and encourage youth to use hip hop in a positive manner that will strengthen their communities and inspire others. We want to introduce youth to hip hop artists that will teach their artform (mc, dj, dance, graffiti). The one-day event will culminate in an interactive jam session between youth, hip hop artists, and community members. We will have speed dating type workshops that will focus on respecting others and will present interactive opportunities for youth to learn music, dance and related arts as a substitute to gang banging, with prevention being the ultimate objective.
The workshop will be from 2-4 pm on Sunday, June 24th at Your Neighborhood Studio.
