Saturday night, August 23, 2014 West Seattle residents enjoyed a night of music and breakdancing with local rap artist “Tyrone, the Working Class Hero” and members of Seattle’s premier dance group “the Vicious Puppies”. The event was part of the annual Work Training in the Arts Program offered by Unified Outreach in partnership with the City of Seattle/Seattle Youth Violence Prevention Initiative Program. Additional musical performances by Beloved One and freestyle rhyming from Tylicia Brown.
Each year the work training partnership offers a series of 6-week programs that introduce youth ages 13-18 to the art of event management. Students learn promotions, facilities, sound& lighting, photo/video editing, hosting, and other areas necessary to put on an industry level show.
Saturday, August 23rd featured “event management in music”, and next weekend (August 30th) will feature “event management in fashion & runway” featuring designer Carlisia Minnis/MAC Fashion House as well as outfits from personal stylist Lika Love. The fashion & runway program has been very popular in previous years so come early if you’d like a good seat!
The events are family friendly and always free to the public. This year’s events do have a goal of collecting school supplies for foster children; so if you have the resources available please consider bringing paper, pencils, pens, backpacks, or other school items to the show.
