speak your mind

We hosted an Open Mic/Poetry Slam at the new music store, Chieftain Track Records. The owners were psyched, and so many artists came out to share their talents. Young and old mingled in glorious creativity. It was such a blast, especially at the end, when guys from 3 different bands jammed out. Our friend Jared MCed and got the crowd pumped. Another friend from IHS read some of his poetry, while Sierra sang a song she had written. The originality was so impressive! Covers dominated the night, with the best being a country/rock version of Outkast’s Hey Ya. Local bands, like Party Apocalypse and My Deadly Dearest, tried out their acoustic sets.

Summer’s Here and the Time is Right

For doing community organizing. So now that summer has officially begun (it being 90s to 100s all week), we’re continuing some endeavors and starting new ones. With our expanding volunteer base and group of adult mentors, we’re making this the coolest summer you can get while in the desert.

Things to look forward to:

1. Community Art Class: Mon and Thurs, 2pm-4pm @ The Drop-In Center (more programs getting scheduled every day.)

2. Phase I of Skatepark constructed

3. 4 heritage trips for youth

4. Community Garden unveiling (trees being planted as I type this)

5. 4 brand spankin’ new murals

6. Opening of our very own arts and activism center
