The Raiz Up

Via The Miami Foundation

Goal

To use hip-hop to spark conversations about the city's cultural heritage and social issues through 'Paint my Roots - Pinta mis Raices,' a series of concerts, workshops and collaborative murals

The Raiz Up will launch a series of concerts, workshops and collaborative murals that use hip-hop culture to spark conversations about the city’s cultural heritage and social issues. Each mural will display a QR code that links to a song created by local musicians and youth that reflects that mural. In addition to creating art and community engagement, the project seeks to break down the stereotypes that exist of hip-hop culture by showing its power as a tool for social activism, capable of bringing generations together and stimulating social change.
