More than a year ago, Tameka Raymond lost her 11-year-old son, Kile, in a boating accident. She mourned, she questioned, and then then she used the pain to fuel something positive. That process is at the core of Radical Self-Expression, and I commend Tameka for allowing her son’s spirit and influence to create a space for other children to thrive.
Kile’s World Foundation intends to offer comprehensive art education to children ranging from ages 10‐17; focusing on music, performance, fine and applied arts. The Foundation will offer art-based camps with multiple workshops including general instruction in the areas of acting, singing, dance, painting, illustration, music production and digital media. The foundation wishes to cultivate an environment where developing artists can explore their artistic interests with the guidance and support of our mentors. Kile’s World Foundation is poised to eventually open a charter school with an emphasis on music and the arts.
Though I am not affiliated with the foundation or it’s members/staff in any way, I so think this is beautifully radical, and I’m happy to share the information. They’ve got a 5K Run/Walk coming up in Atlanta on Saturday, March 29, 2014. Click the flier to register. And please share the information.
