The H2Club is a the culmination of efforts
of everyone associated with GIRAFNetwork, Native Ink Studio, HeroCentral.org,
and 4Deep Studio. We all feel that it is vital to give
back to the youths in our communities where art, writing, and filmmaking
is sorely under-valued. Our public schools have deemed the Arts the
least valuable involvment in our schools and the first thing eliminated
by those same schools to make way for "educational advancement" when, in fact,
we never see any sports program eliminated to make way
for school financial stability. This often creates an intense negative
air at schools when those same youths have no creative outlets to express
themselves in a positive environment. Often times, this leads to gang
violence and school drop out. We here at the H2Club are providing that
mentorship for youths and schools to keep that educational encouragement
that we all need to survive in the stress ridden world of today.
We utilize our artistic and creative efforts to bring students, adults, and any of the community who are interested in learning through artistic endeavors knowledge about how we can each make an impact on our community by becoming involved. H2Club supports itself through
donations made to the non-profit organization GIRAFNetwork, by fundraising
events, and through going to schools, colleges, or libraries with our
Art Awareness in Education lecture series. We can come to your organization
or meeting place, provide our lecture and art production panels, as
well as promote your own fundraising efforts. We want to work with
your organization and youth advocacy groups to empower each of them
in the creative fields, letting their education fluorish through the
eyes of an artist.
If you or your group are interested in
hosting a H2Club event, please contact our Media Operations Director
at email@example.com for scheduling opportunities.
Goal of the H2Club
Art Awareness in Education Lecture Series
The goal of the Art Awareness in Education Lecture Series was to debunk
the idea that there is only one way to learn a subject, thus showing
that it is not just the student's inability to learn or that a teacher
is ineffectual in teaching. The Art Awareness in Education Lecture Series
is intended to foment awareness and understanding of the different facets
of art educaion by serving as a focal point in which speakers and audience,
of a variety of backgrounds, exchange knowledge and experiences as to
learning multiple subjects through the delivery of art education. It
highlights the complex repercussions art has on many of our daily activities:
education, health, work, leisure and even issues which we are usually
not consciously aware, such as genetics. Every other month, a scholar,
member of an advocacy group, or representative from the private sector
will be invited to come and discuss one aspect of Art Awareness from
The Art Awareness in Education Lecture Series was founded and directed
by Jason Bullock, CEO and Founder of GIRAFNetwork, currently working
with Native Ink Studio on a self-sustaining source of revenue for fundraising
to avoid dependence on federal grants. His program, titled Visual Basics:
The Reality Around US through Art, focuses on the development and implementation
of education as seen and understood through an artist's eyes of the sociotechnical
worlds that sustain them.
