Rapping the Climate

 

This spoken word performance highlighted the challenge presented to urban communities by climate change and it’s impact on food production and distribution.  The specific focus of the study and performance revolved around local responses in Minneapolis, MN to alleviating stress on food distribution.  Community gardens combined with food recycling efforts were interwoven through this live performance.

Frustrated by the fact that not all homeless and low income families with children have the opportunity to experience after school programs. These students focused on research about the positive outcomes of structured music programs. Harmonic Hearts organized a music festival at school, during which they collected donations and raise awareness about this issue and hope to raise enough funds to sponsor a series of music lessons for a student at a local music school. The team hopes that this becomes an annual school event.
