GHETTO YOUTHS Foundation, the charitable organization founded and directed by Stephen, Damian, and Julian Marley, have announced Pic Love Conversations: a brand-new opportunity for fans to connect directly with their favorite artists, while supporting GYF’s mission to give back to those in need.
The series officially launches on Sunday, October 11, 2020 with none other than the Grammy-nominated, multi-talented music artist Julian Marley.
Serving as host and MC for the private Zoom session is his niece, daughter of Stephen Marley, the acclaimed dancehall DJ Shacia Payne Marley.
All proceeds directly support Ghetto Youths Foundation’s ongoing work within communities in need, providing critical access to health and wellness, education and youth programming, elder support, and community interventions.
“During these troubling times, when the world may feel a bit upside down, it is a joy to connect with our fans and spread some positivity, good vibes, and healing,” said Julian Marley.
“I am proud to be the first artist to participate in this series to support our Ghetto Youths Foundation work with communities in need across the globe. Giving back is in our DNA.”
Pic Love Conversations was created as a bi-monthly curated series, presented in partnership with Ghetto Youths International in order to close the gap on fundraising opportunities for Ghetto Youths Foundation during the pandemic. Due to the nearly total shutdown of live performance and fundraising events, 100 per cent of Ghetto Youths Foundation’s planned 2020 fundraising events have been postponed.
At the same time, the foundation’s work must continue – particularly the newly opened Cornerstone Learning Center in Trench Town, Jamaica which provides critical academic resources to youth from the Trench Town community, where Bob Marley was raised.
Every two weeks, a new artist from a roster of the very best, fan-favorite reggae and dancehall artists on the scene today will participate in a lively, unfiltered Zoom chat with 25 super fans.
Each guest will have the opportunity to ask a question directly to the artist, who will Zoom in from his/her home or studio, providing an intimate glimpse into their private domain.
As a special thank you, each guest will also be provided with a 50 per cent discount code to purchase any of the Pic Love capsule collection of jewelry – necklaces and bracelets created from Stephen Marley’s signature heart-shaped guitar pic, and hand-dipped in solid gold.
Tickets are $100 per person and include exclusive access to the private Zoom Room; the opportunity to chat with Julian Marley and ask a question; and a special 50 per cent discount code on the stunning Pic Love jewelry collection (www.ghettoyouthsfoundation.org/piclove).
