Creative Imagination Powered by Technology
6th Grade Students
#PhillyBeatz is a technology-based creativity celebration.
First, Kimmel artists visit 6th grade classrooms to deliver a creative beat making workshop. Students then self-select to participate in a 6-week after school residency program, where they learn how to create their own music using electronic music software and embrace their creativity. Upon completion of the program, students are bused to the Kimmel Cultural Campus to attend a Creativity Festival where artists create new work with the students. The day ends with an exclusive Hip Hop performance by professional artists presenting works inspired by the student’s songs on a Kimmel Center stage!
