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.

Services

As a faith movement that is based in San Francisco, Lyrical Assembly acknowledges that we are on the ancestral homeland of the Ramaytush (rah-my-toosh) Ohlone (oh-lo-knee) who are the original inhabitants of the San Francisco Peninsula. We wish to pay our respects to the indigenous stewards of this land, and acknowledge that the Ramaytush Ohlone have never ceded, lost nor forgotten their responsibilities as the caretakers of this place, as well as for all peoples who reside in their traditional territory. As Guests, we recognize that we benefit from living and working on their traditional homeland. We wish to pay our respects by acknowledging the Ancestors, Elders and Relatives of the Ramaytush Community and by affirming their sovereign rights as First Peoples.

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.

ARTIST MANAGEMENT

We manage, curate, and design an artist's journey. We provide support through the duration of our partnership and potentially beyond.

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.
