RedCan 2017
by Cheyenne River Youth Project®

RedCan is rising once again. With interest in Indian Country’s only invitational graffiti jam hotter than ever, CRYP’s third annual RedCan event will take place from June 29 to July 1 at CRYP’s Waniyetu Wowapi (Winter Count) Art Park and throughout the city of Eagle Butte.

What Is a Graffiti Jam?
Graffiti jams were designed to introduce graffiti as an art form, bringing together people who exemplify the contemporary graffiti art movement and how it has evolved since its inception a half century ago. In the case of RedCan, not only are artists showcasing a global movement, its relevance and how to be part of it, they’re connecting the graffiti world with the indigenous one, allowing Lakota artists to infuse graffiti with their own culture, identities and stories.

RedCan provides meaningful, lasting inspiration to our young people, who seek to explore their identities, find their own unique voices, and express themselves in a positive, healthy way. It also offers offers an unprecedented opportunity for the Cheyenne River community to experience what has become the largest art movement in the history of humankind.
