Toronto, ON – Here’s something to make you feel good today! You may have seen previous posts regarding an organization that goes by the name of R.I.S.E Edutainment. Most people know R.I.S.E for hosting a weekly open mic showcase in Toronto that brings together poets, singers, rappers, songwriters, and comedians. Since their inception, R.I.S.E has been providing a safe platform for artists of all backgrounds across Toronto to express themselves in a positive way. However, it is much more than just a show; they give back to the community by feeding the homeless and also, conduct poetry workshops for young people. Overall, their movement has touched the lives of many and is continuing to grow day by day. Watch their promo video below to see for yourself.

Natasha was born and raised in Toronto. She graduated from York University almost 2 years ago and since then has co-founded a youth led, social enterprise called The Next Edition which uses media and art to engage youth with their community. For the past year and a half she has been working with young aspiring artists who are looking for a way to showcase their skills and have their voice heard. With juggling weekly meetings, managing a website, and planning events for hundreds of people Natasha takes refuge in urban music. Researching and knowing the latest headlines, and newest tracks in the hip-hop world is something that she loves. But more importantly for her hip-hop is a lot more than just a genre of music, it is a culture and it has shaped who she is today. Finding a way to combine her passion for music, the knowledge she has gained from working with young people and the issues she has seen in the community is a goal Natasha would like to achieve in the near future. Recently, Natasha has taken on PR work for rappers and DJs.
