Hip Hop Meets the Outdoors: an Alternative Conservation Effort

My name is Ani Yahzid and I am a filmmaker and student at the University of Colorado, Boulder. For my next endeavor, The Exposure Film Project, I will be setting out to influence the social norms around outdoor recreation in order to encourage more multicultural urban millennials to explore nature. I’ll be traveling to Olympic National Park in June (2017) with a hip hop Artist, Namaste, and his Producer, Keelan, from Atlanta, GA, and we’ll be filming a series of short films about outdoor recreation through the lens of Urban Culture.
