Months after the events that occurred at his Astroworld Festival in November, Travis Scott has unveiled a series of community-focused philanthropic projects under the umbrella name Project HEAL, including a task force to ensure the safety of events.
The rapper, who is 30 years old, has said that ever since a crowd rush at his Houston music festival resulted in the lods of 10 of his fans, he has taken the time to “do my bit to repair my community.”
He sent a message on Instagram in which he said, “Most importantly, I want to utilize my resources and platform going forward towards meaningful change.
This is going to be a journey that lasts a lifetime for me and my family.”
HEAL includes a million dollars’ worth of scholarship named after Scott’s grandpa:
“My grandpa was a teacher, and throughout the course of his career, he touched the lives of hundreds upon thousands of young people.
He has had a significant effect not just on myself, but also on the many other people whose ambitions he championed, whose aspirations he supported, and whose futures he expanded ”
The second level of the HEAL program focuses on making services for emotional stability available to young people living in communities of color with lower incomes.
Part three offers “free studio space, workspace, tool spaces, job and training, youth education and events.”
