Phife Is Living | "Act Like You Know! Not Now. But Right Now." hosted by Words Beats & Life

presented as part of the 16th Annual DC Hip-Hop Theatre Festival


Phife is Living, is a multi disciplinary arts festival, hosted by Words Beats & Life, named for a founding member of one of hip-hop’s most important groups, A Tribe Called Quest. This festival is dedicated to promoting life, and engaging communities in the healing, loving and growing of LIFE. The Festival begins with a series of community service activities including breakfast, workshops, greening the community, yoga and small scale art installation. The second portion of the day is dedicated to transforming Marvin Gaye Park into an arts, culture, and health expo lifting Phife up as an example of the epidemic of Diabetes, the need for healthier food, the eradication of food deserts, access to quality health care and the arts as an economic engine for a healthy community. (BUT HOW, SWAY!?)
