This event is 18 and over
In order to sustain our tiny space, we need to pay rent and utilities. This amounts to about $3,000 a month. You can read more about our funding at welcometojuniorhigh.com/funding . It's a transparent look at where our money goes, and how much we need.
In February of 2018, we are also looking to renovate the space to make it safer by sealing our concrete floors and installing more functional lighting. This costs money. Our amazing contractor Mary Leigh has estimated our remodel quote right around the $3,000 mark.
So your donation today will help Junior High exist for another year, working with young people and insanely talented artists that aren't afforded a voice or a platform in commercially recognized galleries.
Junior High is a non-profit community space in the sense that we book content by curating pitches sent from artists to our inbox. We try to diversify our calendar and bring awareness to issues often overlooked or communities currently under attack. Junior High is meant to showcase the creative pursuits of marginalized voices.
Pop Rock from Northampton, MA
SAMMUS (Enongo Lumumba-Kasongo) is an Ithaca-raised, Philadelphia-based rap artist, producer, and PhD student in the Department of Science & Technology Studies at Cornell University. Known as much for her rousing stage presence as she is for her prowess as a beatmaker and lyricist, Sammus has spent the past several years cultivating a strong following of activists, hip hop heads, punks, and self-identified nerds and geeks, among others. As noted by the Los Angeles Times, Sammus “has a gift for getting a message across.” Having recently made her Don Giovanni debut (while remaining tied to NuBlack Music Group), she is poised to cement herself as an artist who consistently thinks outside boxes and dances across lines (and does other neat things with geometrical figures).
Amindi K. Fro$t
Amindi K. Fro$t is a singer/songwriter from Los Angeles, California. A self-taught musician, she picked up an interest in music at the age of 12 and has been growing ever since. Five years later, she has written a plethora of songs and has worked with multiple up and coming artists, developing a fresh sound with each track at only the age of 17. Keep up with this artist-to-watch!
