Funk U

The Funk Parade also identifies and elevates relevant historical touchstones through Funk U(niversity). Funk U is an educational initiative that creates dialogue through various learning experiences. With the support of artists, arts educators, activists, government representatives, Shaw neighborhood residents, and cultural institutions, we have established an ecosystem of one-of-a-kind experiences that enlighten thousands.
