About the speaker
Hear how the art of “flow” has guided Marcey’s creativity and passion – and how it’s now impacting the community.
Yates graduated from The Conservative School of Recording Arts and Sciences in Arizona with a sound that can be described as expressive vinyl hip hop. Motivated by an urge to uplift and change the way people think or feel about themselves and possibilities, there is a strategic, yet fluid, logarithm to his concepts, production and songwriting.
In addition to his solo work, Yates is one half of the duo Dilla Kids featuring Xoboi and regularly lends his talents as an established producer to emcees searching for the ideal beat. Recently, he has played with Rakim, P.O.S, Black Milk, Freddie Gibbs, B-Real, Weezer plus more at the Maha Festival, Lincoln Calling festival, and SXSW. His band Dilla Kids recently won the 2018 OEA’s for best rap hip hop.
Culxr House in another venture founded by Marcey Yates. Culxr House is creative art / community space where artist and entrepreneurs can grow and enrich their own artistic talents and create opportunities. This community consists of visual artists, performers, sound engineers, producers, vendors, photographers, designers and videographers.
OutrSpaces provides shared workspace for performing artists to rehearse, perform, develop their careers, & engage surrounding communities.
Dedicated creatives and members of the Greater Omaha Chamber have partnered together to bring CreativeMornings to the Omaha community. We are committed to building a connected, supportive community where all are welcome to learn and be inspired!
The Art Center includes the three anchor Hot Shops, 50 art studios, four art galleries, and many exhibition spaces.
The studio spaces, which occupy the entire building, are available for artists of all disciplines. A place where artists can work and interact establishes an atmosphere for creative art discourse. This will not only be an energizing influence on development of art, it will ultimately create relationships with other artists fostering a sense of community.
