WHO WE ARE

We are a lyrical collective of artists, activists and administrators opposing injustice through social awareness and systemic change. Lyrical Opposition is for the misfits. The voices mainstream society marginalizes, LO seeks to highlight. Primarily, it is an arts organization comprised of poets, musicians, and activists whose mission is social change. Through its artists and strategic partnerships, LO advances social justice and systemic change efforts by cultivating messages of hope that inspire and empower. Secondly, LO seeks to serve the community by bringing individuals into spaces with people they would not typically cross paths with to reduce biases and restore communities.

WHAT WE DO

Lyrical Opposition operates as both an artist collective and nonprofit organization that discovers and develops lyrical artists who spread messages of hope that inspire and empower communities towards social change. We serve the lyrical community with three areas of cultivation: artist development, personal development, and professional development. We believe synergy between all three are vital towards social and systemic change. Through artist discovery and development, artists are taken to the next level with the resources needed to thrive as a professional artist and educator..

AWARENESS

Lyrical Opposition brings awareness to various causes, in hopes to shed light and mobilize the community towards social action. We amplify injustice through curated and contextual content specific to relevant causes. In addition, LO strives to bring positivity and social change into several major areas of influence - media, nightlife, education & juvenile system.

COLLABORATION

We collaborate with various organizations and believe in organizational alignment.

WELLNESS

We believe in a healthy holistic approach of each artist's journey. Practicing mindfulness and placing an importance in mental health are vital to the artist community. As writers continue to create and write around rhythms, it's important to be in a clearheaded space so they can put their all into what they’re doing. A lot of times many parts are riding from stress, anxiety, or pain. But this time around let’s see if we can write from a space of clarity, peace, and experience

EDUCATION

We serve the lyrical community with three areas of cultivation: artist development, personal development, and professional development. We believe synergy between all three are vital towards social and systemic change. Through artist discovery and development, artists are taken to the next level with the resources needed to thrive as a professional artist and educator. In addition to inspiring and empowering communities through socially-conscious lyrical content, we believe in being educators in our contextual communities to create systemic change.
