Art On My Mind 2019
July 12 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Art Gallery of York University will offer a free rap and poetry program that will engage 25 youth from the Driftwood Community Centre Day Camp. Taking place in Edgeley Park (North York), this program will be facilitated by a team of rappers and spoken word poets as well as a sound engineer and videographer including Jameel3dn, Terence Penny, Zakisha Brown, Abdulkadir “Moose” Nur, Named Tobias, Jaselle Ricketts and Kareem Ricketts. A number of our educators grew up in and/or continue to live in the Jane-Finch community. Workshops will provide participants the opportunity to hone their skills in writing and performance, ultimately enabling them to produce professionally recorded spoken word poetry/rap songs as well as rap and poetry videos.
The Art Gallery of York University will also present a performance showcase on July 12th in Edgeley Park featuring Zakisha Brown, Terence Penny, Named Tobias, Jameel3dn, Adbulkadir “Moose” Nur, Veshone, Denise De’ion, UTG Ruby and Kibra. The event will also feature an open mic that will allow our workshop participants to perform and share the work that they produced during the course of our program.
