We're hosting these events in partnership with Speakeasy, an early-stage startup offering intimate, online events with fascinating speakers and performers. Their vision is to bring the vibrancy of a university campus to people everywhere.
In this workshop, Bay Area rapper Alex “Frak” Fraknoi will teach us the fundamentals of rap and songwriting, from verse to hook to the art of rhyme. We'll also write raps, poems, and songs about concepts that mean something to each of us. A past participant said, "We love Frak so much we gave up an hour of the best weather day of the year to join this session. And it was worth it!" This is a two-part workshop, and we encourage participants to attend both sessions if possible.
We're offering a limited number of tickets for this event so that everyone who attends can participate. We hope to create an intimate vibe, as if we're all together in someone's living room, so we'd ask that you keep your video camera on throughout the event.
Entrance into the event is on a first come, first serve basis. Once we hit capacity, we will not be able to allow additional people into the event. Please plan accordingly.
