Education & Community Engagement
1520 Arts partners with several community organizations and municipalities. Through these partnerships we provide after school programming to under served youth in Salt Lake County. Additionally, 1520 Arts provides Hip Hop based classes, workshops, and assembly programming through out the county. By removing barriers to access, 1520 Arts is able to bring creative Hip Hop arts programming to students who otherwise would not have access.
During the year 1520 Arts produces and performs at a variety of events. 1520 Arts has performed at The Utah Arts Festival, Utah State Fair, Urban Arts Festival, DIY Festival, Mural Fest and many more. In addition to performing, 1520 Arts produces it’s own Battles and Art focused events. Battles and workshops take place through out the year and offer the local community regular competitions and social events. The 1520 Weekend combines workshops by some of Hip Hop’s most iconic figures and a local art show. These events provided our community with opportunities to perform as well as socialize and sharpen their skills.
