Artists, innovators and community leaders will showcase solutions, art installations, actions and information on how to improve the economy and the planet. The JAMP MASTERS will be a featured performer in the Village and will be lifted up as an example of how youth – through art and music -- can lead the way in creating a more inclusive, safe and sustainable community.

J.A.M.P. students bring the funk with youth program

He's just one of the kids involved in the James Brown Academy of Musik Pupils, or J.A.M.P.  READ AND WATCH FULL STORY AT WRDW.COM
