WBL’s Creative Core




The launch of the Creative Core has allowed WBL to work toward becoming a city wide and eventually a regional Hip-Hop Apprentice Program. The expansion of programming will allow up to track the progress of a wider range of students receiving a wider range of educational and professional development support.

The Core supports the continued development of our students as working artists and entrepreneurs by subsidizing the cost of their performances. The Academy will partner with ANC commissioners (local government) to insure that community festival and block party organizers know about, and book artists who are part of the Words Beats & Life Creative Core. The Core allows WBL apprentices and Master Level artists to provide performances to District Government Agencies, Local Non Profits, Street Festivals, and Block Parties by subsidizing a portion of the cost.

In the second phase of the Cores development, its members will be central in expanding Academy programming into the region. This expansion will take the form of classes/workshops offered in schools, libraries and recreation centers as both stand alone activities and embedded classes in partner organizations.
