Active Arts Youth Conference

The AAYS will be using art to educate, motivate, and mobilize the hip-hop generation. Our program will include a variety of workshops, panels concerning the building of student movements, a town Hall meeting with Danny Glover, live muralling, music performances, and a Demo Derby in which young artist submit demo tapes to a panel of record industry judges. Input and suggestions for our program will be much appreciated but combining our events with other events which are not focused specifically on youth within hip-hop culture, or do not include facilitators who are have experience working with youth, would be counterproductive. The focus of the AAYS is very specific so all of our programs and events will involve arts and have a distinctive urban atmosphere.

There are 21 workshops planned.
