What we hope to achieve

It all started when…

When we noticed the need for change amongst our community. so many creatives we were around were devoid of access to technology and resources. They were forced to prostrate themselves and convert to industry standard just to be able to create. We think that no youth should have to struggle to get the basic necessities needed to express themselves. the financial, technological, and social resources needed to further one's ability to create should be readily accessible. There should be  a hub were disenfranchised youth are able to gather without falling prey to corporations and entities that wish to exploit their talent. Youth/adults should be able to have a place where they can gather, express and trade ideas amongst themselves. Free. Open. Experimental in nature. Inspired by the birth of hip hop, we focus on the four disciplines: dj-ing, art, music, dance and we add another... technology. With the emerging growth of this fifth medium brings expansive potential to incorporate the other four. Unfortunately people in poor neighborhoods rarely have access to this fifth medium and are in dire need of resources.
