Malkuta Project

Kickstarter Campaign

We have launched our Kickstarter campaign in order to raise funds for our pilot project with the Art of Cool Festival!!  We need 160 people to donate $25 in order for us to reach our goal of $4000.  You can check out the project HERE and donate!!  

Empowerment From Within

Malkuta comes from the ancient Aramaic language and translates as "empowerment from within."  Malkuta describes the creative spark within all of us, a potential that when cultivated and tapped into can result in extraordinary personal empowerment, as well as widespread social change.  Malkuta is the process of utilizing our creative gifts to make the world as we wish to see it - a place where people are no longer marginalized, oppressed, homeless, hungry, or powerless.  

Curriculum Design

Students are linked with professional creatives and can learn music production, photography, and videography through our 8 week summer series and 12 week Fall or Spring semester series.  Students learn through a creative, hands-on approach combining multimedia technology, art, and social justice themes, and produce content for our partnered organizations and clients.
