VOICES @ HILLYER
Have you heard about the V.O.I.C.E.S event that happens at Hillyer Art Space, the second Thursday of every month?
Well its time for another one of these events that are designed to raise funds and awareness for grassroots organizations across the globe that support youth empowerment, development and leadership. If you haven't been to V.O.I.C.E.S, its one of the most unique and progressive events in the city.
Looking for something to do after work? Come out and enjoy an eclectic mix of music, drink and food, and network with like-minded people interested in activism, international development and social change. DJs spinning global hip hop and international tunes and then settle in for a multi-media presentation on a cutting edge, grassroots organization working to help youth through music, arts and culture. Round out the evening listening to some skilled lyricists and emcees sum up the experience with a hip hop cipher.
This month we will be highlighting the work of Hip Hop Harmony Africa, an organization that is fostering the growth of Urban Culture to be a force for social and economic change in Northwest Africa.
