The Hip-Hop Artist Residency aims to bridge the gap in access to arts opportunities for at-risk teens, empowering confidence, professional development in the music industry, and leadership identity by building participants’ skills in artistic expression and collaboration.  From July 25- August 12, 2016, this intensive residency will serve up to 40 emerging artists through two tracks: the Vocal Track, which will  foster self-expression through lyricism, rhyme structure, and delivery and the Production Track, which will emphasize media literacy, beat-making, and song construction. Participants will feature their work at a culminating event at the end of the residency.  Following the residency, youth will participate in four monthly 3-hour cyphers (from Septemenber through December 2016) as a way to advance their collaborative learning.
