VIBE 305 Café and Youth Artistic Showcase
This epic idea has the ability to not only change the public space but change lives of underserved youth that have fallen victim to violence and crime by providing positive alternatives for these youth. VIBE 305 Café will use the public space of 20 NE 29th Street in Wynwood, which has already been procured for this project, and place a food truck / trailer on this property. The project will then train inner-city boys to work & run the VIBE 305 Café & also allow them to showcase the many diverse talents of our inner-city youth via their works of art and music. VIBE 305 will be a point and place of pride, where they could grow, learn, expand their horizons & forge new pathways to a better life all the while learning essential life skills.
Simply put, people can have great food and feel great about it. There is currently no space in this county that achieves what this space will achieve. It will beautify the area; train young people in several different disciplines; develop, encourage and train under-served inner-city youth in careers in the arts, culinary and hospitality industries; and give them a showcase for their talents that the entire community can enjoy.
With this multidisciplinary education, we can change these youth’s entire world – but in order to do so, we must raise their consciousness; the only way to change their world is to raise their general consciousness. VIBE 305 Café – Striving to create individuals that are going to change the world.
