Jun 16, 2015

Arts Corps, based in Seattle, WA, has partnered with EMP Museum and hip-hop group Macklemore & Ryan Lewis for a youth artist residency programs that gives participants a chance to work in a professional studio, collaborate with established artists, and record original material.

The program engages aspiring teen hip-hop artists who want to get paid to learn from and work alongside professional teaching artists as well as standout members from Seattle’s hip-hop and creative arts community. The Hip-Hop Artist Residency is designed exclusively for low-income teens from King County with limited access to high-quality arts education. Aiming to directly address the access barriers many underserved youth and families face when asked to choose between paying for an experiential learning opportunity beyond their means and getting a summer job this camp is an opportunity for youth to pursue their artistic development and be compensated for their talent.
