Clinton County youth are invited to “make some music! Learn how to create original tracks through the art of beat making, song writing, and rhyming!” The B.E.A.T Explorers Workshops, taught by professional MC’S and DJ’s from NYC are typically reserved for youth in libraries and schools of New York City. But now B.E.A.T. Workshops is bringing the program to Frankfort, Indiana!

Bridging Education & Art Together (B.E.A.T.

Bailey Foundation.
