This past March the 19th I was invited to play a social justice inspired DJ set at the historic Martin Luther King Jr. district in Atlanta, GA. The reason for this was the celebration of three gorgeous murals that came to life as part of Education is not a crime; a street art campaign that engages in advocation for educational rights all over the world. We had a great time celebrating these murals and the message behind each one of them. I hope we continue advocating for what is right and starting conversations about issues like this using art as an agent for social change. What a time to be alive and the new friendships community based projects create. Simply a beautiful experience to be a part of. You can learn more about these murals, their creators and the people behind this initiative via this article published on IranWire or visiting Notacrime.
