Looks like we got more hip hop related info from Marvel's new Netflix series 'Luke Cage' with news that every episode will be named after a Gang Starr song.

Video games have a few decades of history behind them, so why not look back at one of the first systems.

#nostalgia #Atari #videogame #history
How well do you know your video game history? Today, video game consoles are dominated by Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo. But back in the late '70s and early ‘80s, Atari was one of the biggest gaming brands, and it paved the way for the other companies to follow. This fall, Dynamite Entertainment is releasing The Art of Atari, an extensive retrospective of Atari’s lore alongside artwork from the company’s arcade and home games. Robert V. Conte and...

More Than Meets The Eye: Transforming BB-8 Cosplay. This is a very clever cosplay example.
This is a short video of a little girl cosplaying as BB-8 at WonderCon 2016 last weekend. Precious, right? She doesn't seem to know what to do with all the people around her watching and taking pictures. I wouldn't...

Story
Tagline
art is what unites us.
Introduction
FOKUS uses the arts to educate, empower and unite communities.  We believe the arts enable people to rise above barriers in society by creating new ways of thinking, communicating and interacting.  FOKUS highlights the importance of and need for arts and creativity in life. 

Our mission is to educate, empower and unite communities using the arts.

Our primary areas:
arts education: teaching experiences using arts and artists in schools, community centers and other spaces. These programs allow students to develop discipline, leadership and responsibility through the exposure and practice of the arts.

arts in the community: short-run experiences that bring art into communities. These include art shows, film screenings, panel discussion and curation of spaces.

arts awareness: quarterly publication of INSIGHT magazine which provides access into the minds of artists and expands on what is considered art. INSIGHT is a story board gallery of artists from diverse background and disciplines.
