LOST IN A WORLD

Intikana spent one year leading Bronx youth at New Visions Charter High School for the Humanities through writing workshops to produce this music video.

THE POINT CDC

Interested in writing an article for The Hunts Point Express, filmmaker Iva Radivojevic visited Intikana's class in The South Bronx and was inspired to direct this short film.

 

MUSIC / POETRY / WRITING

As a roster artist and educator at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute for over two years, Intikana collaborated with several brass orchestra groups to record four studio albums with youth in New York City.  He has implemented his unique style of music therapy in urban communities throughout the United States, Canada, The Caribbean, Central America, South America, and Africa.  He has conducted annual training at New York University, University of Michigan, and University of Wisconsin - Madison for teachers seeking to engage with Hip-Hop in the classroom.  For one year, Intikana served as Arts Education Specialist at P.S. 7 Brooklyn Elementary School developing original curriculum for 4-8 year olds.

FILM

In collaboration with the Jacob Burns Film Center and Media Arts Lab, Intikana led a two-year Poetry / Film program where NYC youth who reside in group homes were able to record and film their own poems / raps in a professional state of the art studio.  Each year, these youth learned to produce and edit their own Poetry / Music videos which were eventually screened in a professional movie theater.

PERFORMANCE

Intikana's workshops have been selected for both short and long-term residencies. He has been responsible for curriculum building and facilitation for both in‐school and after‐school. He has prepared and organized many groups of students for end‐of‐the‐year performances with families, parents, and staff.
