What happens when Danny Morales, owner of CYPERS The Center for Urban Arts come together with Representative Cesar Chavez? We discover the impact of Hip Hop changing lives of youth, the community it brings, and resilient, authentic creativity. Legislative District 29 encompasses West Glendale and North Avondale and has the largest population of Hispanics in the state.
We are joined today by art powerhouse Carmen Guerrero, founder of Culture Coalition and Representative Isela Blanc of District 26. Our talk today is focused on the profound impact of arts in the lives of K-12 students.
In Episode 3 we meet theatre artist and advocate Marcelino Quinonez and Arizona State Senator Juan Mendez. Both of them have a passion for change, which is why they have dedicated their lives to Arizona, arts, and politics.
In this inaugural episode of Arizona Uncensored, we talk with two youth artists and advocates: Paula Ortega and Thameenah "Ty" Muhammed, and Arizona State Representative Jennifer Longdon. We hear from them on why they do what they do in both arts and politics.
