“You don’t make progress by standing on the sidelines, whimpering and complaining. You make progress by implementing ideas.” – Shirley Chisholm
The Young and Fokus’d movement was birthed under Get Fokus’d Productions in order to be a source that educates, uplifts, motivates, encourages, and promotes youth and young adults who display dedication, perseverance, and “focus” in their academics, arts in their community.
We believe that by promoting their artistic abilities through the Young and Fokus’d movement we motivate students to perfect their craft and inspire other young people around them to do the same. Young and Fokus’d highlights stories of young people in the urban context who represent a generation of creators across art disciplines impacting the culture with their art.
Seeking to reverse the narrative of “troubled youth” in urban and sometimes neglected neighborhoods, we inspire them to write their own narrative through their talent. Our heart beats for young people in the urban areas of the city who get overshadowed by the sometimes turbulent landscape around them.
When Get Fokus’d Productions cultivates and invests in young artists we validate their place in the world. The stroke of a pen, a brush of paint on a canvas or sketch on a notepad are all expressions of the artists’ heart. Artists convey their raw emotions, vivid imaginations, and connection to their surroundings through their art.
