Art + Culture + Education + Technology + Fun = #DILLAYOUTHDAY
Celebrating Black History Month @ The Charles H Wright Museum of African American History 315 E. Warren Det, 48202
This year we are honored to celebrate our 5th annual event on DILLA’s actual birthday (February 7th, 1974) and acknowledging the 10th Anniversary of his passing (Feb 10, 2006).
YOUTH WILL LEARN HOW TO MAKE BEATS!
Sonic Maker Space: In keeping with the DIY spirit of the Dilla style of Music Production, the culture of Mechanical Ingenuity of Detroit, & the removal of Arts & Culture from Public Education, How do we give more opportunities to young people to become makers and learn practical skills that can be applied to their own creative process? This event, based on the Disco Tech model is a fun, compelling hands-on program that will inspire young learners in the STEM disciplines.
(STEAM: Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, & Math) by connecting youth to technologies in order to help them realize the creative potential of cutting-edge hardware and software tools. Also, we’re connecting Detroit’s Best Music Producers & Community Leaders with youth to teach them not only the techniques and equipment but also the history of the Dilla Production Style in order to preserve this culture of Hip Hop.
