About Words Beats & Life, Inc.

Founded in 2002, Words Beats & Life (WBL) transforms individuals and whole communities through the core elements of hip-hop culture. At the heart of all that we do is the belief that hip-hop can serve as the necessary filter between hope and despair for the youth of the District of Columbia. WBL accomplishes its goals through two main program areas—The Words Beats & Life Academy and The Cipher. The Words Beats & Life Academy is a pre-vocational, arts-based youth development program for youth and young adults. The Cipher is a growing resource for our ever-expanding network of hip-hop based organizations, which equips organizational leaders with the tools and experiences necessary to build sustainable communities. It is our organization’s larger mission to set a high standard in arts education and presentations for youth and emerging artists.

About the Chinatown Block Party

Every weekend Words Beats & Life works with DowntownDC Business Improvement District (BID) at Chinatown Park (5th and Mass) to host our Block Party . The Chinatown Block Party is from 5 – 8pm, from July 12 to August 9. Attendees can enjoy live performances while exploring their creative side with a host of free activities including graffiti art, DJing, double dutch, mega chess, and a dance workshop and drumming activity. 

The Chinatown Block Party is part of the Discover Chinatown Parks programming series supported jointly by the DowntownDC Business Improvement District (BID), and the Mayor’s Office on Asian and Pacific Islander Affairs (MOAPIA). 

Program partners include Words Beats & Life, Inc., the National Park Service, the DC Department of Parks and Recreation, and the DC Public Library.
