Preceding his performance this evening at the Outpost, Outpost and 516 ARTS present a special hands-on workshop for teens and adults at 516 ARTS with Dahlak, NPN Resident Artist from Los Angeles. He says, “Personal narrative is a key element in the writing of Hip Hop artists. The culture expects that emcees use lived experiences as a springboard for any topic they choose to tackle. The autobiographical, however, is usually only a foundation of the over-arching narrative.” Participants will write, share and be encouraged to re-imagine their personal narratives in order to speak to their society with relevance. The goal of the workshop is to free participants from being “bound” to the facts, and instead use their imaginations to highlight parts of their stories. $15/$10 Members (Outpost & 516) & Students.
