RDAC-BX + Urban Art Beat Summer Youth Celebration! from Anusha Mehar on Vimeo.

For 7 weeks, RDAC-BX and Urban Art Beat worked with youth ages 14-24 around youth empowerment, community organizing, critical writing, song writing, audio production, video recording, and photography. Our goal was to build community using artistic approaches, for the youth to walk away from the program having gained hard earned skills and confident in their own capabilities to channel their strengths and to CREATE the media they consume. Our summer together culminated in a final Summer Youth Celebration on Tuesday, August 16th at the Rebel Diaz Arts Collective Hip Hop Community Center in the boogie down South Bronx. Youth performed their original songs and poems, exposed their photographs, fundraised by selling a 13 page newsletter filled from cover-to-cover with content they came up with, and debuted a 15 minute short film using footage they recorded that so beautifully captured their summer experience. It's among the 1st of many dope events to come this year!
Thanks to our homey Eddie Pages for the ill video piece!
