Watch “For Every Rose (That Grew From Concrete)”

“For Every Rose” (inspired by “The Healing Power of Hip Hop”) helps us to see that no matter how much we do on our own as individuals, we stand on the shoulders of those that came before us. Today’s ambassadors of Hip Hop embody the best of what the culture has offered over the years, and the best of what their respective communities have offered. They move seamlessly from an emphasis on “me” to an emphasis on “we” – helping to bridge self-improvement with community improvement. 

FlowStory exists primarily to help youth and young adults reach their potential.  Although as found in our recent research, Hip Hop culture can help across all ages! We invest in people’s natural instincts to better their lives… to feel better, do better, be better, & have a better sense of belonging while making the communities they value better. We call this type of empowerment “The Better Principle.”

EMPOWERMENT + HIP HOP CULTURE = FLOWSTORY

All our work is grounded in decades of research, which we bring to life with the MUZUZE model. We link self and community empowerment, with targeted efforts on esteem, resilience, growth, community, and social change. A core strategy is to unpack the role of music (and the arts) in people’s lives. We seek partnerships to help integrate the best in Hop Hop with strategies being used in families, education, therapy and afterschool/summer programs.

RESEARCH & PRACTICE (FLOWSTORY) + TOOLS = BETTER ATX

While FlowStory provides information and consultation about the theory, research, and specific youth work strategies, BETTER ATX provides the hands-on tools and resources created by FlowStory. All projects, activities and resources are research-driven.
