Joakim Noah and the Drop of Consciousness Movement
Uniting Chicago youth through arts programming & peace awareness inspired by the Drop of Consciousness to create positive change in our communities.
Noah’s Arc Foundation and After School Matters are uniting forces to inspire peace in Chicago communities through arts programming and the Drop of Consciousness movement. With both organizations’ deep connection to the city of Chicago, its communities and its youth, the Rock Your Drop on the Block event provides a platform for Chicago’s youth to have their voices heard. Youth draw inspiration from the pillars of Noah’s Arc as well as the Drop of Consciousness to develop visual and performance art that will be showcased at the Rock Your Drop on the Block event as well as peace flags that will be carried by hundreds of youth and community members as they march to the event.
Throughout the summer teens participating in the arts programming throughout the city of Chicago will be discussing, reflecting, and creating artwork that is influenced by the pillars of Noah’s Arc including awareness, consciousness, unity, and gratitude as well as the Drop of Consciousness movement for peace.
When you Rock Your Drop, you pledge to help end violence, take responsibility for positive change and commit to spreading the message.
