Program Description

Arts Corps, MoPOP, and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are collaborating to host year 4 of The Residency. The Residency breaks down the barriers of access to equitable arts experiences for underserved teens in the Seattle region in order to build their skills in collaboration, self-expression, technical acumen, leadership identity, and confidence as cultural change-makers. The intensive residency will serve 45 emerging artists through two tracks over four weeks.  Each track will be lead by two teaching artists and a classroom assistant, serving 45 youth.  The Vocal Track will  foster self-expression through lyricism, rhyme structure, and delivery, and the Production Track will emphasize media literacy, beat-making, and song construction. Following the residency, youth will participate in four monthly 3-hour cyphers (from Septemenber through December) as a way to advance their collaborative learning, workshop ideas with their cohort artists, and sustain the sense of shared community and motivation after the completion of the four-week residency.
