Noah’s Arc Foundation and After School Matters unit forces during the summer to inspire peace in Chicago communities through arts programming and the Drop of Consciousness™ movement. With both organizations’ deep connection to the city of Chicago, its communities and its youth, the Rock Your Drop on the Block event provides a platform for Chicago’s youth to have their voices heard. Youth draw inspiration from the Drop of Consciousness™ and develop visual and performance art that is showcased at the Rock Your Drop on the Block event.

Throughout the Summer teens participate in the arts programming at a local community center and other external programs will discuss, reflect, and create art work that is influenced by the Drop of Consciousness™ campaign for peace.
