RISE pushes the boundaries of creativity, self-respect, self-discipline and self-belief, and builds a bridge of open communication between participants and the community. Elicser’s passion for contemporary art and RISE’s dedication to working with youth propels this wonderful collaboration to mentor younger artists to be heard, seen, treated equally and taken more seriously through connections with both visual and text based art forms.



Artist Elicser Elliott & R.I.S.E Edutainment will team up to vision a large-scale public mural at Bendale Park Underpass through a spoken word and street art cypher. 



Workshops will be held to bring artist visions to life through a collaborative community approach. The sessions will explore moving from spoken visualization to word and from word to visualization.
