Magic & Illusion

Hip-Hop XChange

Josh G is a Master Mind Illusionist who has been supporting Create Now by providing magic shows for troubled kids at our Open House, and at the recent L.A. Fashion Corner event.

Around 25 homeless youth at Covenant House in Hollywood loved Josh's show so much that they have begged him to teach a weekly Magic & Illusion Workshop. His classes will begin in March.

For kids who have been forced to live on the streets, knowing some magic tricks can be the chance for them to earn money and to develop a fun career!

Create Now is proud tobe a participant in the 2014 Annenberg Alchemy+ program.

We're honored that FHI 360 (an adjunct of the U.S. Department of State) invited Create Now to meet with four unique hip-hop artists. They're all very popular in their countries with large spheres of influence. These rappers are using hip-hop music to stop their youth from becoming jihadists

From Egypt, we met The General and Temraz. From Tunisia, we met Blidogg and Kouki Dateacher. Also present were Mark Schulman, Mike Madariaga and Gabe Rosales, along with Jill Gurr and Laura Kelly. It was a very powerful meeting that sparked amazing global connections.

Then we brought our guests to Vortex Dome LA, in collaboration with C3. Everyone was enthralled by the phenomenal demos. All the artists were able to perform together, while their images were creatively projected in the dome. It was a very impressive show.

As a result of our Arts xChange, these artists are now building "Universal Zulu Nation" chapters in their countries. Karim Dateacher remarked, "This is really huge, to keep helping kids get out of their negative spaces."

Gabe Rosales exclaimed, "This was an amazing opportunity to have like minds come together working toward a common goal to uplift the youth, since that's the future of everything. This is going to change the world!"
