V.O.I.C.E.S (Voices Organizing for International Change, Empowerment, and Support)
DATE: Thursday, December 10th, 2010

Have you heard about the V.O.I.C.E.S event that happens at Hillyer Art Space, every month?
Well it's time for another one of these events designed to raise funds and awareness for grassroots organizations across the globe working to help youth, women and underserved communities through music, arts and culture.
Come out and enjoy an eclectic mix of music, drink and food. Network with like-minded people interested in activism, international development and social change. Enjoy DJs spinning global hip hop and international tunes, and then settle in for a multi-media presentation on a cutting edge, grassroots organization. Round out the evening listening to some skilled lyricists and emcees sum up the experience with a hip hop cipher.
This month highlights the work of End of the Weak (EOW, LLC). At the heart of Hip Hip music is the desire to spread knowledge and to create a community united through stories of displacement and struggle. End of the Weak (EOW, LLC) is a New York city based movement directed towards cultural improvement. Over the past ten years EOW has established a platform for artists in eight countries across five continents (Germany, France, United Kingdom, Brazil, Argentina, Spain and New Zealand) through the MC challenge.
