Scott has been running music and language based programs known as Respect Workshops throughout Western Australia for more than ten years. He works with schools, detention centres and youth groups.
The workshops are very effective in building self esteem, help to encourage self expression and are great fun. They also promote teamwork, leadership, respect for culture and respect for self. His programs are widely applauded amongst the education system and community groups.
Scott became a CanTeen ambassador in 2013 and has run several hip hop workshops for our Members as well as supporting National Bandanna Day and other CanTeen activities.
He says “As someone who believes in the power of art to change lives and who has also dealt with losing loved ones to cancer, it is an absolute honour to be a CanTeen ambassador.
“It’s amazing to spend time with the CanTeen crew and it’s inspiring to be around such brave young people.
“Hip hop to me is such a positive and incredible culture once you scratch the surface and shed the negative stereotypes. It is something I witness time and time again working across WA.
“Running hip hop workshops for CanTeen Members is first and foremost about fun and escapism, but other outcomes I see are development of creativity, increased self esteem, better communication skills and a way to release the overpowering emotions these young people carry with them daily.”
