RHYME at PS/MS 105 (2022)

Thrive Collective, together with Projectivity Group and Speek Lyfe Movement, proudly presented the R.H.Y.M.E. program at PS/MS 105 The Bay School in 2022. Students from Classes 302, 305 and 308 worked together to write, perform, and produce an original song in each class; conceive and star in a music video for their song; design and produce album cover art and related merchandise; and distribute their artwork digitally on platforms including YouTube, Bandcamp, and online. Thank you Principal Laurie Shapiro and the amazing students and faculty of PS/MS 105 for your visionary support.

About R.H.Y.M.E. at PS/MS105Q The Bay School

In January 2022, Thrive Collective and R.H.Y.M.E. partnered with Speek Lyfe Movement and Projectivity Group to bring a multi-media program to PS/MS 105 The Bay School in Far Rockaway, Queens. A group of Teaching Artists and Guest Speakers, led by Lawrence Coles, III and Paul Coles, worked as Artists-In-Residence to engage with students to produce music, media, and graphics with three different classes.

The result was three classes each producing their own professionally recorded and engineered song, designing cover art for the song, and creating a music video for the song. Students also received T-shirts with their album covers on it, along with R.H.Y.M.E. Program Certificates of Completion.
