Empowering community through art and education
Since 2012, Elephant Rebellion has been transforming communities by empowering youth and adults through art and education. Our dedicated artist collective crew has been conducting educational workshops, throwing vibrant events and releasing socially conscious music throughout Chicago and the midwest. Guided by our mission and the tenets of Hip-Hop, our organization focus on education, immigration and incarceration issues our communities face everyday.
Art Development, spearheaded by all of us is one of our core functions. The creation of art that is both positive and built in resistance is a a part of our mission so that we may grow and help our community do the same.
We strive to develop the artistic skills of our community, and to create art that tells the true narratives of our time.
Community empowerment is an integral part of Elephant Rebellion's mission. Led by Elgin Bokari, we work to help our community members by providing workshops, art classes & services, performance opportunities and support for grass-roots organizing efforts.
We believe that by empowering our people, we can build self-sustainable communities that can flourish and nurture our youth & adults
