As an artist, educator and agent of change, Farbeon has graced stages, panels and classrooms from the streets of Spanish Harlem to the halls of Georgetown University to the  Czech Republic.  In addition to rocking shows with The Last Poets, Rob Swift, Fishbone, The Coup, J-Live, Wordsworth, Method Man, Camp Lo, Blu and Aloe Blacc he has co-taught classes with Sadat X, Talib Kweli, Pharoahe Monch, and Fab Five Freddy. 

FARBEON is the co-founder of Say Word Entertainment, a collective of socially-conscious and like-minded artists, producers and community organizers, who work to maintain and support the development of genuine hip-hop culture, community, and activism in NYC and abroad.  He is committed to a interdisciplinary approach to teaching and learning that attempts to remix- sample from an array of best practices, in order to create curricula that are responsive to the needs of his students.  He is the co-founder and Director of The Hip Hop Re:Education Project, a community-based organization that uses the Hip Hop elements to inspire and transform communities, engage disadvantaged and disaffected youth and improve youth motivation and achievement.  As well, through his work with the BronxBerlinConnection, he has not only facilitated the production of multi-lingual, cross-cultural youth music-works, but he has also helped facilitate 3 international exchange trips, using art and education to explore and express the unique experiences of urban youth around the world, the critical challenges they face and the solutions necessary to enact change in their communities.  Farbeon has toured Europe 7 times in the last 3 years, including a trip last September which was funded by the U.S. State Department. .  For more information, you can check out www.farbeon.com and www.reeducate.org
