The Residency seeks to build a powerful community of young hip-hop artists equipped with the artistic and leadership skills, business acumen, and mentorship necessary to become professional artists and cultural change makers. Through their participation in The Residency, young artists from low-income families acquire tangible artistic and professional skills while also gaining confidence, teamwork, and a deepened understanding of their own identity and power.

The Residency launched in July 2015 as a collaboration between Museum of Pop Culture, Arts Corps, and Grammy award winning artists Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. It was created as a response to the glaring gap in access to high-quality, experiential arts education for low-income youth and has quickly become the preeminent training ground for the next generation of artists poised to leave a lasting mark on Seattle’s growing music industry.

The year-round program includes a month-long intensive workshop in the summer in which 45 young people participate in either a vocal or production track. During the intensive, youth write original songs, record in a professional studio and perform in front of hundreds of people at a premiere Seattle venue. In addition to making, recording and performing their music, the youth participate in a number of engaging panel discussions with leaders in the northwest creative community. The Residency exists to break down barriers to equitable arts learning. In an effort to address financial difficulties and to honor their work as artists, youth participants receive stipends at the completion of summer intensive. Further, participants receive subsidized transportation and meals throughout the intensive to minimize potential challenges to full participation in the program. After the summer intensive, youth (our “alumni”) have access to regular skills building workshops, get opportunities to perform and take part in other educational and industry experiences, including the Resilience College Scholarship Fund which provides financial scholarships for alumni pursuing further education.
