Hamilton Pulls Into Los Angeles Brings EduHam To Teens

first_imgWhile the musical itself is exciting enough, it’s the #EduHam educational program for Title I public high school students that really builds anticipation. Not only does the initiative offer teens the chance to see the musical for just $10, students participate in an online course that teaches the history featured in the musical and challenges students to create their own historical performance pieces. They then have the opportunity to perform in front of their peers and the cast of the show.”These kids are writing these incredible poems and dances and songs and scenes, not just from the perspective of George Washington, but also Sally Hemings and Phillis Wheatley — it’s this incredible way to explore how history isn’t told,” Miranda said. “We really don’t treat Hamilton as the be-all, end-all of American history — it’s a musical! It’s as much as we can cram into two hours and 45 minutes! — but it’s been a great jumping-off point.” “Hamilton” In L.A. Goes H.A.M.

Miranda says teachers were already using the viral 2009 opening number “Alexander Hamilton” in classrooms before the whole musical was finished. He envisioned kids as part of the experience, but wanted to go a step farther than simply discounting tickets. From there, #EduHam was born.Having reached nearly 40,000 students already, #EduHam follows the musical into each tour city, which has included New York and Chicago so far Los Angeles will be no exception. The production is working with Los Angeles May Eric Garcetti to gather the resources to make the program possible, such as student transportation and meals.Thanks to the #EduHam initiative, “Hamilton” brings the musical to a diverse audience and provides new opportunities for students.”This is not a typical Broadway audience,” said Miranda. “To see these kids experience ‘Hamilton’ onstage — a story told in the music they listen to, with a multiracial cast that looks like them — it’s magical.”Read More: New “Hamilton” video pays tribute to immigrantsRead morelast_img read more

Kickstarter Launches Drip Funding Program For Artists

first_img Twitter Crowd-funding platform launches new ongoing financial support program designed specifically to sustain artists’ careersRenée FabianGRAMMYs Nov 17, 2017 – 11:29 am As an independent artist, sometimes one of the most stressful parts of the business is waiting for the money to trickle in. Kickstarter thinks it can help by providing a steady Drip of financing for artists using their new platform.Acquired by the popular crowd-funding platform in 2015, Drip initially began as a project from record label Ghostly International, which envisioned a subscription support system for musicians. On Nov. 15, Kickstarter announced they were relaunching the program for creators of all types, including musicians, writer, artists, filmmakers, and more.Drip allows creators to set up a hub that gives fans the ability to support artists across their entire body of work, instead of fundraising for one-off projects. Artists on the platform can then offer potential subscribers incentives such as early access to new work or behind-the-scenes details on the creative process as rewards for their ongoing support.Building on more than $3 billion in pledges to support upward of 100,000 creative projects from 13 million people in the eight years since their launch, Kickstarter hopes Drip will provide artists a new and sustainable way to keep creating their art on their terms.UnitedMasters’ $70 Mil Play To Manage Music Data BetterRead more Email Kickstarter Launches Drip Funding Program For Artists News Facebook Get A Funding “Drip” With New Kickstarter Program kickstarter-launches-drip-funding-program-artistslast_img read more

Turos Carculator lets you see potential earnings from renting your ride

first_img Earnings Volkswagen 1 36 Photos More From Roadshow Car Culture Share your voice Volkswagen Peer-to-peer car sharing — Airbnb for cars, essentially — is a relatively new concept, and its biggest proponent right now is Turo. If you’ve thought about joining the service, but weren’t sure what kind of money could or couldn’t be made, Turo now has a tool for that.Turo’s “Carculator” (clever name) is pretty straightforward — plug in a year, make, model and location, and it will spit out your possible potential earnings with an estimate of how often it would be rented out. It calculates this estimate by looking at data from rentals that have already happened, so it’s not just pulling figures from thin air.Enlarge ImageConsidering my station wagon isn’t exactly an objet d’art, I’m not surprised its earnings potential is lower than the examples Turo provided in this image. Turo If the number is hilariously low, perhaps you won’t get much out of renting on Turo, but if you have a highly sought-after car, it might replace your pupils with dollar signs, cartoon-style.As a quick example, I looked up my personal car, a 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen SEL. Detroit wasn’t listed as a location, so I just used the national average. According to that information (with my specific trim selected), my VW could earn $551 per month, which is slightly under my monthly payment. That number is calculated based on a possible $41 in earnings per day spent rented, and the Carculator estimated I’d be able to pawn my wagon off on people about 13 days each month.Of course, that won’t work for me, because the car is tied up in daily commutes every weekday, but when it comes to sports cars and other vehicles that are only used occasionally, it could very well be a solid stream of supplemental income.center_img 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous Comment 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value 2018 Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen gushes with value 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better Tagslast_img read more
