Urban Art Beat

Urban Art Beat is a non profit created by Rosa Bettina, a teacher who saw the need for after school programs while working in the public school system in the bronx and recognized the power of hip hop to bring a positive impact to youth. Through Critical Revolutionary Hip Hop Pedagogy, a training program developed by lead teaching artist Spiritchild, artists are trained to teach and empower underserved youth with the tools of hip hop culture. Cyphers, mentorship, and lessons from history on the roots of hip hop and how the music and culture has been a way to bring awareness to issues and bring about change inspire the youth to shine their voice in reflection of their own lives and the issues of the world today.
