On Monday and Wednesday evenings from January to April, youth at the Humber Clubhouse, Boys & Girls Clubs of Weston-Mount Dennis, and 155 Neptune Drive, Boys and Girls Clubs of Lawrence Heights, worked with their selected Artist-in-Residence, Hip Hop artist, Grivanni Binger, aka Gene One. With his multi-talented background, Gene One helped youth learn two aspects of Hip Hop culture: beat-production and graffiti. Youth gained practical skills in design and production, while also engaging in discussion about the politics of art.

From September through December, Humber youth worked with Lee Pham, artist, producer and break dancer, known in the breaking community as Lethal. Fifth generation member of world renowned b-boy crew, SuperNaturalz.
