Justice by Uniting in Creative Energy (J.U.i.C.E.) is a non-profit weekly hip hop arts program that seeks to develop youth leadership and technical skills, creative expression and self-confidence through the artistic elements of hip hop which include breakdancing, urban art, deejaying, emceeing/spoken word and music recording.
Justice by Uniting In Creative Energy (J.U.I.C.E.) was founded in 2001 in the Rampart District of Los Angeles. We are a non-profit hip hop collective that meets every Saturday from 12-4pm at the MacArthur Park Rec. Center AND every Thursday from 4pm to 9pm at Chucos Justice Center. We teach visual arts workshops, paint large-scale and legal graffiti murals in the community, record and produce music, emcee, bboy/bgirl on a large hardwood floor to live DJs. We create unique opportunities for underserved young artists to showcase their work, network with peers and professionals and engage with their communities in a positive manner through the arts.
The program is free for all age groups. J.U.i.C.E. encourages the creative expression and self-empowerment of at-risk youth through skill-building using the music, visual art, and dance of the hip-hop culture. By providing youth with high-quality equipment, artistic mentors and a safe, accessible space to gather, J.U.i.C.E. participants, from all walks of life, are able to learn from each other and hone their artistic skills in an environment free from discrimination and violence.
