The good faith of Travis Scott in Houston is undeniable. The rapper from Missouri City made a big splash in Houston last year with a hit album titled "Astroworld" and a music festival centered on Houston and bearing the same name.
After the biggest year of his career, Scott just donated $ 100,000 to Workshop Houston, a non-profit after-school program located in the third room.
The Houston workshop participated in Scott's Astroworld festival last year with several other non-profit organizations. (Chronicle music critic Joey Guerra wrote about the event here.) There, he learned about the existence of the artistic and educational program of the organization, which motivated the donation.
According to Workshop Houston, part of Scott's donation will go to programs, including one in which local students recreate Milly's dress of former First Lady Michelle Obama, which is featured in her official portrait of the White House. The organization will also organize a drone racing contest with entries created by local student teams. The event will be held May 17 at Space Center Houston.
The Houston workshop celebrated its 15th anniversary in the third room last year, a journey that began as a community space for bicycle repair before becoming a program for junior and senior high school students. More about the program right here.
