Great Hearts Initiatives | Kuumba Lynx

Mission

Kuumba Lynx is committed to the lives of youth using urban art and performance to cultivate strong communities built on a foundation of love.

Our core activities involve weekly urban arts programming sessions held for chicagoland area youth. We also hold special events all throughout the city which you can read about on our website!

KL energizes affirming spaces that challenge youth and their communities to deeply engage & listen, critically observe and react, and creatively speak with one another. Annually, KL Hip Hop Arts Programs directly support and create opportunities for approximately 1,000 participants directly and another 1,500 indirectly through free to public activities. KLPE reaches an estimated audience of 15,000+ people.
