A changemaker is someone who is not happy with the current state of things. A changemaker channels their desire for change into a force that can make the change they want to see come true. A changemaker witnesses the present, learns from the past, in order to create a brighter future.

BLK MGK is a collective of 8 BLK artists formulating an ideology of a youth-centered art community. Our collective envisions a world where artists can shine, thrive, and heal free of socio-economic barriers. We provide opportunities for individuals to de-stress and express utilizing Hip Hop as a framework to expand the network, the minds and reach of all artists.

If our team wins, we plan to use the $1,000 award money to expand our ARTcation retreat series which is a vacation-style art experience. With this support, our next ARTcation can take place in Richmond, CA.
