Phase One of Project
One: one love. one mic. one song. a success!!!
Don’t miss your chance to attend the remaining Music & Dialogue sessions!
Over one hundred L.A. County youth have already plugged into Project: One’s Music
& Dialogue Sessions featuring performances from conscious artists and human relations
discussions with youth from across the County. On January 24, 2009, Project: One
kicked off in Watts at the Maxine Waters Employment Preparation Center with guest
artists Medusa, Mike the Poet and Grammy Award winning song writer KC Porter!!!
The following Saturday, January 31, downtown Long Beach experienced a flood of conscious
music with artists Noelle Skaggs, J-Dubbs and Def Jam Poet Ise Lyfe! Check out our
slideshow and performance videos! SHOUT OUT to all the artists who have come through
to share their art and life stories with L.A. County youth!
Contrary to stereotypes about Generation Y’s music taste - it’s not all about the
bling. In the breakout discussions, youth reported out they want to hear music with
passion, truth, creativity, spirituality, politics and realness. Youth are also
using innovative media strategies to creatively contrast mainstream consumer culture
with their own original work. Project: One’s Music & Dialogue Sessions are free
spaces for youth to hear from conscious artists, professional song writers, engage
around social justice issues and cultivate positive intergroup relations between
L.A. County youth. Some but not all issues raised in the first two dialogues include:
sexism, xenophobia, homophobia, classism, domestic violence, politics of the music
industry, child labor and war. We have much more to dialogue about and we want to
hear from you!!!
