Conscious Hip Hop Musical Set
McAD as the Freedom Movement will be co-creating for another year at Arise Festival with the Rainbow Lightning Children’s Village to inspire and create community unification with the wonderful people at this years festival. McAD knows the crucial benefit and value of engaging and honoring our youth, and bridging the social activities and ceremonies of the far reaching generations that co-create on this planet, and more specifically on Turtle Island, what we call the United States. Music that reaches the Old and the Young, or you might say the old school and the new school, is a wonderful medium to bring our generations together through dance, rhythm and positive vibration. The Freedom Movement has been active since the first annual Arise Festival to do just that. Come visit us at the Children’s Village and honor the elders and the youth alike. Mitakuye Oyasin!
McAD created the Freedom Movement in 1999 in an effort to bring members of the community together in an enjoyable and creative environment. McAD understood the value of incorporating an artistic medium as a way to communicate social/political topics in a manner that was digestible and appealing to the general public. The Freedom Movement has always remained positive and socially conscious about its message, communicating the ideals of localization, sustainability and community development. The Freedom Movement strives to “Be the change that you want to see in the world.” The result is a new form of music and an energy that is desperately needed in today’s culture.
