Street Arts Academy selected for Coca Cola Thanks You Fund 2013

Coca-Cola Ireland Thank You Fund

Hi Folks,

We have been short-listed for the Coca-Cola 2013 Thank You Fund for our Street Art Academy a culturally diverse arts Hip Hop programme for young people aged 12 – 20 that encourages them to be more physically and creative active and nurtures a concept of cultural leadership.

Our proposal is to roll out our project regionally to encourage more young people to participate in Street Art Academy .

Street Art Academy meets each school holiday. Currently over 50 young people from culturally diverse backgrounds living in Adamstown, Clondalkin, Lucan and Tallaght have been working with 4 of Ireland’s leading Hip Hop artists, to develop skills in Break Dancing, Song Writing, DJ’ing /Music Technology and Visual Arts.
Street Art Academy performed at The Noise Dance Moves Festival in April and at Tallaght’s Love Live Music Day in June.
