A series of lectures from some of the most notable members of the writing community, including Rocky 184, Mike 171, Snake 1, retired police officer Steve Mona, Ket, Alan Bortman, Daze, Cope 2, Jonathan Levine, Ces, Keo, and Serve. For a full overview of our workshops, click here. All workshops will be moderated by Sacha Jenkins.

Through unprecedented access to Taki 183, Cornbread, and a host of other legendary figures, “Wall Writers: Graffiti In Its Innocence” director Roger Gastman tells the story of a time when underprivileged city kids refused to keep lurking in the shadows, when the streets were so wild that fame and infamy became indistinct, and when art became a democracy and self-promotion became an art. This film screening will be followed by a Q&A with the director, moderated by Sacha Jenkins.

Our workshops continue with in-depth conversations with Henry Chalfant, David “Chino” Villorente, James Matthew, Claudia Claw Money, Cey Adams and Haze. For a full overview of our workshops, click here. All workshops will be moderated by Sacha Jenkins.
