The KRUNK Movement Kreating Realistic Urban New-school Knowledge The KRUNK Movement is a student lead music and health initiative that uses jazz, hip-hop, dance, recording engineering, visual art and equipment management to communicate positive messages about physical and mental health to teens and pre-teens. The movement is designed as a production company and also serves to teach students how to start and run a small business. The movement started in 2005 with students brain-storming ideas that brought the KRUNK Movement into existence. Through KM the students have created a venue through which they can use their God given talents to impact the lives of their peers and earn income. The KRUNK Movement has completed three phases: The first phase was the creation of the movement as a small business. The second phase established the movement as a production company and a student health education provider. The third phase secured KM as Gateway to the arts artist in residence and opened up the doors for the students to take their message of physical and mental health into the Pittsburgh Public Schools. This year we employed 16 students from 13 communities who performed for 46 organizations and produced two new CDs'. It has been an incredible three years. The KRUNK Movement is a project of Center of Life Community Empowerment of Pittsburgh Pa and can be booked through Center of Life by calling 412-521-3468 or on line at gatewaytothearts.org.
