Seed Arts Camp Showcase on Sunday!

This weekend, the Eayikes crew is embarking on our 3rd arts camp in LA, called Seed Arts. Back in 2013, our very first youth camp was an art-centered mentorship weekend in Long Beach, so this one is special to our hearts. The mission of our Seed Arts initiative is to facilitate a space of trust, connection, and self reflection through community and art. Our goal is to transform the way youth understand to connect, and create a-ha moments they can bring back to their lives. We believe the arts are powerful. They not only teach creativity and self-confidence, but can serve as a common ground to bring people together.

Throughout the weekend, the youth will participate in Art Labs, where they will learn the basics in photography, DJing, playing the ukelele, and work on a collective art piece. On Sunday night, we will be celebrating the works of our campers and our diverse community with a final art showcase at camp. We would love to have our friends and family join us at the showcase to celebrate their works and connect with the community!

Community day of love & service!


Community day of love & service!

We've made it a goal to host a community event every month to finish out 2016! Join us on Sunday 9/25 for a day of yoga, activities, and serving the local homeless. 

The last time we got together for a day like this, the positive vibes were strong:

We love making care package goodie bags that are useful for the local homeless folks. Below are some items we purchased all thanks to previous financial donations!

We'll also be getting some dry food & snacks with the goal of making 60 goodie bags. If you have other ideas let us know by reaching out to or on social media somewhere :)

If you're coming, please RSVP (click)! Thanks everybody!



Kinjaz Collabo and Love!

Yesterday was just an amazing, powerful, life affirming day!  My old friends Mike and Anthony were working a video for the crowdfunding campaign of Eayikes, a non profit I work on with some friends. They are world renowned hip hop dancers so to have their support meant the world. I just thought that it meant that they were shooting a video where they voice their support. Little did I know that they went and choreographed a whole piece, and brought out members of their crew Kinjaz, and their videographer Jon. It was a pretty profound thing to witness, to see old friends who are masters of their craft using their talents to creating a video to raise awareness to a cause that you believe in with all your heart.

I was able to see dance in a new light. I've always appreciated it and loved to watch it, and to dance like a madman at festivals, but this was different, it was profound. They would ask each other, "what's our intent and motivation?" and they would respond, "It's for the kids" and "Eayikes"! So when they would go through a take and I would watch, it just brought a whole new meaning and appreciation for these folks giving themselves completely. 

Thankful for!

  1. Friends who will support your dream!
  2. A new appreciation of dance!
  3. To be able to pick my friends' brains at this stage of their growth and evolution
  4. KINJAZ!
  5. For not giving up on this process when hope wasn't to be found at times, it was all training to gain the perspective of gratitude and see the value of process!!!!

Here it is!!!

Quoteski /// "The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, nor the kindly smile nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone else believes in him and is willing to trust him." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

To see them put their love, sweat, thinking, and bodies on the line to make a video for Eayikes that will hopefully help us reach our crowdfunding goal, and then be able to serve more people and do more programs was a beautiful thing to witness. 

If you got some more time, check out their absolutely nasty Troyboi piece from America's Best Dance Crew this past season!
