CypherLeague: Culture is Yours to Create – D.i.Y. Workshop

0000969693_10From David Stouck ’15:

What is Cypherleague?
Cypher League is a multi-platform cooperative that facilitates artistic collaboration among the creative, independent, and inquisitive. We are plugged into the most diverse artistic community there is, the hip hop community. In our opinion, Hip Hop is the most advanced form of artistic self-expression. That’s because it is not a single form of self-expression, but rather an eclectic mash-up of many. Based in Brooklyn, NY, our team will be coming to Wesleyan’s campus this week to participate in the R.A.W. Cypher, share our thoughts on founding an independent artistic collective at our D.i.Y. workshop, and perform at Earth House on Friday night!
