Details

EMP Museum is proud to partner with Arts Corps and Grammy Award-winning duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis to offer a three-week intensive Hip-Hop Artist Residency focusing on creative songwriting, performance techniques and beat production.

The Hip-Hop Artist Residency seeks aspiring teens who want to get paid to learn from and work alongside professional teaching artists and a virtual who’s who from Seattle’s vast hip-hop and creative arts community.

All participants will record an EP of their original music at a professional studio, and put on a final performance inside of EMP Museum’s Sky Church.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

Youth ages 13-19 with an established desire to pursue hip-hop and music as a career must apply online and meet all criteria in order to be considered.

ALL PARTICIPANTS RECEIVE:

  • Fully-funded three-week instruction
  • $500 stipend upon completion of the program
  • Complimentary bus tokens
  • Daily lunch provided

This Hip-Hop Artist Residency is designed exclusively for rising teen artists from the greater Seattle area who meet the King County low-income verification. Aiming to directly address the access barriers many underserved youth and families face when asked to choose between paying for an experiential learning opportunity beyond their means and getting a summer job this residency is an opportunity to provide up to 40 teen artists with a high-quality arts experience that supports them pursuing their artistic development and be compensated for their talent.
