Exploring Identity Through Hip-Hop and Spoken Word In-Person

COMPAS teaching artist See More Perspective (AKA Adam) will work with participants in a workshop that explores social identity and how it informs the choices we make as artists and as people. Participants will engage in activities that help illuminate their own identity and values, reflect with peers, and begin to discover their own creative voice.

SEE MORE PERSPECTIVE has been described as a “Chicago Institution,” “walking creativity,” and “The hardest working, most unjustly slept-on artist in the Twin Cities” ... This award-winning hip-hopper is a Twin Cities Native, Chicago transplant, MC, poet, producer, engineer and educator. SEE has done years of youth work through hip hop and spoken word—dealing with social justice, identity and community engagement issues; has performed at countless venues and festivals; and has spoken at and facilitated workshops at various social justice conferences and retreats. He aims to inspire, uplift and open doors to possibility and imagination with an invitation to self-discovery through meditations on community, history and the expression of pure imagination.

This program is supported by MELSA and funded with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
