The Hook & Ladder Theater is very proud to host the 25-year anniversary event for one of the Twin Cities’ most important non-profit arts organizations serving our youth, Kulture Klub Collaborative. This milestone achievement is a testament to the important work they do year in and year out.
Founded in 1992, Kulture Klub Collaborative (KKC) is a unique nonprofit organization with a mission to engage art and artistic practice to provide enriching opportunities for youth experiencing homelessness and artists to grow individually and to transform community. For 25 years, they have provided innovative arts programs to young people who come to YouthLink’s Youth Opportunity Center in Downtown Minneapolis to receive services. KKC has an Art Lab, gallery space, performance space, and recording studio on-site.
KKC brings dignity and respect to both youth and artists. Young people in crisis explore their creative capacity, receive exposure to artistic excellence, and interact with a group of peers, supportive adults, and diverse social communities. KKC offers working artists opportunities to expand their practice and professional skills by creating work with young people who offer a unique perspective. They believe that art can be a useful tool to help end homelessness and that youth experiencing homelessness have essential perspectives on the cultural phenomena that create housing instability – such as notions of public/private space, definitions of family, identity politics, property rights, education systems, and access to health care.
On any night in Minnesota, 6,000 young people will experience homelessness. KKC serves youth ages 16 to 23 who are currently, recently, or at-risk of experiencing homelessness. Most of the youth they engage have experienced abuse and abandonment. Many are struggling to survive.
