--Mother Nature, Inc. provides community outreach grounded in Hip Hop scholarship and performance with a focus on youth and young adults, ages 12-24 years old. Offering workshops and activities centered around social and political issues to educate our generation on the pertinent matters that affect their daily lives. By putting these grand topics into the universal language of Hip Hop, youth and young adults alike are able to more easily connect to the policies and laws being implemented that affect them. All workshops focus on a central theme accompanied by a creative activity related to the 5 elements of Hip Hop (emceeing, deejaying, graffiti, dance & knowledge). The two founding members, both artist-educators are uniquely qualified. Shasta Mathews, holds a Bachelors of Arts degree in Creative Writing from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Tierney Reed, holds a Bachelors of Arts degree in Health Administration and Education from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Both have made impacts on the local music, art, and political scene and dedicate their freedom to freeing others. Check Us Out
