Announcing “StreetBeats”: A New Event From Today’s Future Sound

Today’s Future Sound invites you to:

StreetBeats: Healing Through Hip Hop

As part of the Schusterman Foundation’s #MakeItHappen initiative, Today’s Future Sound will bring beats to the streets with “StreetBeats: Healing Through Hip Hop”, an interactive event that celebrates diversity, inclusion, and self-expression through the universal language of music.

The artistry and culture of Hip Hop has significant real-world applications, yet it’s power to engage, unify, heal, and give voice has often been overlooked, particularly in educational settings, community centers, and places of worship. The Bay Area boasts some of the most religiously, ethnically, and racially diverse neighborhoods, and yet so many arts and music programs don’t have the capacity or funding to reach people where they are.

Today’s Future Sound already fills this need in some of Oakland and San Francisco’s most under-resourced schools and juvenile centers, but have yet to bring our program to the Bay Area community at-large.

From October 4th-11th, StreetBeats booths will be set-up at parks, recreation facilities, and youth centers for 2-3 hours, where our dynamic instructors will be providing hands-on beat making and music production instruction to invitees and passers-by alike.

Each StreetBeats event is open to all ages. Come on by and learn how to create your very own beats!
