Update: We Did It… with Your Help!!
If you’ve been following this project, first of all, thank you! We could not have done any of this without the generous support of the RI hip hop community, the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities, the Rhode Island State Council for the Arts, and you. Back in March, 2017, we launched our fundraiser for our feature-length documentary film about hip hop in Rhode Island. If you forget, here we are asking for money:
Since then, a lot has changed. First, we changed the name from The Breakers to Almost Dope, we raised almost $5000!!!!! we changed the release date to August, we finished the film, and we screened it twice in Rhode Island. What a summer!
So, what’s next for the RI Hip Hop Project? We’re planning on keeping this project alive by hosting our film online here and uploading all of the photos and interviews we had to cut from Almost Dope. That being said, you can still donate! This is a grant-funded project that runs on free time and the love of hip hop. If you would like to donate time, stories, or resources, reach out to Ana and Jeff at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’d like to donate money to this ongoing project, click the button below.
