STG Presents An Evening with The Residency featuring Macklemore + Special Guests at The Paramount on Saturday, September 28, 2019.
An Evening with The Residency will celebrate 5 years of the innovative program that provides access and opportunity to aspiring young hip hop artists. The evening, featuring Residency student performances and guest speakers will raise funds to support the ongoing growth and expansion of The Residency. Macklemore will headline the show, with featured special guests joining him and Residency alumni on stage. This will be a unique fundraising party unlike anything you’ve been to before.
About The Residency:
The Residency seeks to build a powerful community of young hip-hop artists equipped with the artistic and leadership skills, business acumen, and mentorship necessary to become professional artists and cultural change makers. The program launched in July 2015 as a collaboration between Museum of Pop Culture, Arts Corps, and Grammy award winning artists Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.
The year-round program includes a month long intensive workshop where up to 45 young people participate in either a vocal or production track. During the intensive, youth write original songs, record in a professional studio and perform in front of hundreds of people at a premiere Seattle venue. In addition to making, recording and performing their music, the youth participate in a number of engaging panel discussions with leaders in the Northwest creative community.
The Residency exists to break down barriers to equitable arts learning. In an effort to address financial difficulties and to honor their work as artists, youth participants receive stipends at the completion of the residency. After the summer intensive the youth have access to regular skills building workshops, get opportunities to perform and take part in other educational and industry experiences.
