The Young Minds Movement is a community based non-profit organization in Toronto that has put together a free Rap Writing Workshop for youth ages 12-22. It’s happening this Sunday, August 18th, 1:00PM – 4:00PM at 180 Shaw Street, Toronto.
Join Dillan Ponders, a Canadian hip hop recording artist signed with SmashMouth Ent. , born and brought up in Toronto alongside Phenomenal P from The Young Minds Movement, in an interactive workshop as they discuss hip-hop, and the benefits of writing rhymes to manage mental health. Dillan and Peter will work one on one with participants by helping them create new rhymes, enhancing lyrical abilities, flow and delivery.
Opportunities to speak your written words will be given as well as a chance to hear Dillan Ponders himself, how he traded the drug scene for music and overcame homelessness amongst other challenges. This is a FREE workshop not to be missed! Make sure to register on Eventbrite online to secure your spot here. (Open to ages 12-22 only)
