BCAM Arts & Media Spotlights

BCAM Artists Collaborate on Community Arts Xigga Project


BCAM Artists are (left to right): Angelica Pizzaro, Nicole Rodrigez, 
Ashley Moreno, Dwight Dawkins, Briana Jean-Mary, Oneisha Conway,
Anastasia Kitt; (Frontrow ) Jeremy Rumnit, (Instructor) Jess Valoris


Check out the slideshow of the event HERE.

A small group of young visionaries from BCAM participated in a community arts workshop with the Xigga Projeck, led by our very own BCAM Visiting Artist-in-Residence Ms Jess Valoris. They spent a little over an hour together, participating in improv activities and writing exercises, and delving into the Xigga manifestas and then it was time to hit the streets.



Armed with courageous creativity and some chalk, these students took over a corner of Brooklyn. They transformed an empty wall and deserted street corner into a vibrant universe and dynamic space for community connection and empowerment. Students started by sketching out pyramids and planets and galaxies and literary excerpts from the 
xigga manifestas. And then they began to engage passersby... From babies to elders to college students: inviting people to draw on the wall, to share what inspires them and makes them come alive, to write down what they want to manifest in their worlds. It was a powerful nexus of arts and community!! 


Check out the slideshow of the event HERE.

"Ode to the High School Dropout" by BCAM's very own Mrs. Jones-Llopiz



Listen and pay attention.  This is real life.

"Ode to the High School Dropout" tells the story of how the choices we make in our present can powerfully impact our future. The lesson to learn is heed the advice of those who are older and more experienced. Your youth is precious, but short-lived in the grand scheme of things.
