The mission of 1Hood Media is to build liberated communities through art, education and social justice.
Founded in 2006, 1Hood begins as a collective of men from various disciplines, ideologies, and belief systems who banded together to address violence within and against our community. We have grown to an intergenerational, intersectional community committed to the same mission. 1Hood Media is a collective of socially conscious artists and activists who utilize art as a means of raising awareness about social justice matters affecting people around the world. We offer performance, written and visual art to connect communities and amplify messages. We provide workshops, curriculum consultation, media literacy training, conflict resolution, lyricism/songwriting, vocal instruction, music production, blogging, photography, and videography. Further, we offer consultation to artists seeking to establish a fruitful independent career and organizations who wish to establish a culture of equity and activism. In addition, 1Hood Media provides youth based training in media literacy and the creation of media via 1Hood Media Academy. Focused on social justice and training arts entrepreneurs, the Academy provides a platform for artists to tell their own stories and provides avenues for young people to utilize their own gifts and talents to secure financial sustainability. Additionally, 1Hood Media also organizes and promotes educational and performance-based forums as a part of our programming.
