In August of 2013, Donda’s House, Inc. partnered with the ARK of St. Sabina to offer its pilot youth education and arts training program called “Got Bars.” Five hundred students applied and the top thirty candidates were selected. For twelve weeks, the students took a weekly Creative Writing, Health & Wellness and Studio Recording Class.
On Thursday, November 21st, 2013 from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. these students will perform their original songs in public for the very first time. The night will also feature performances from T.L. Williams, the Studio Recording Teacher, and grammy-award winning artist & program co-founder Che “Rhymefest” Smith, backed by Chicago’s own live band Zzaje. Rhymefest co-taught the 12-week Creative Writing class with the organization’s Executive Director and certified English Teacher, Donnie Smith. The “Open House” Performance on Thursday, November 21, 2013 is being sponsored by Lacuna Artist Lofts and will be held in Lacuna’s “Reverie Gallery.” Lacuna Artist Lofts is located at 2150 S. Canalport, Chicago, IL 60608.
