Elementz – A Cincinnati Hip Hop Organization

Posted: December 4, 2012 by majesticohha in Uncategorized

Elementz is a youth center, located in Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine Gateway Quarter, whose purpose is to engage inner-city teens and young adults in positive ways as an alternative to the street culture of guns, gangs and drugs. We teach creative expression using hip hop and urban art as an overall theme, as hip hop allows expression in music, spoken word, dance and visual expression. In addition to teaching young people to express themselves through various arts forms, for teens ages 14-18, we focus on engaging them in the community and building a network of caring adults to help them stay in school, advance to higher education, create a vision for their future, and stay out of serious trouble. For young adults we provide additional professional training for serious artists and help them market their artistic skills.
