    “Next Sun Rising”
    Setting: Bed Stuy, Brooklyn
    Brooklyn Community Arts and Media High School


    Program Description:
    As part of a community service initiative, students from BCAM’s University\ of Hip-Hop club worked with UHipHop teachers from Chicago to paint a mural titled “Next Sun Rising”. This concept sees youth as the next powerful and positive influence on the world, and encourages their participation in community development as social activists addressing their societal concerns.

    The words chosen for the central mural were “Life”, “Read”, and “Soul”, and the group of artists painted the words “Integrity” and “Creativity” in other spaces in the school- yard.
