Pourquoi Pas? Inspiring Students to be Their Best

August 21, 2017 | By FRENCH CULTURE ATLANTA

Last year, the project University of Georgia, Athens, “Pourquoi pas? Inspiring Students to Be There Best” was distinguised by the France on Campus Award's selection Committee and they won the second place!

The aim of this project is "using the composition and production of an original hip-hop song in French to give young high school students from Clark Central High School a purpose to stay in school and an interest to learn French."

Music Only is a UGA student organization created in 2014 as a way to bring diverse groups together to experience music and positivity. Kelsy Reddick, the current President of Music Only and a student in Health Promotion, says the organization “seeks to enhance the music culture on campus and the Athens community.”

From this outreach goal Music Only is partnering with us to spread positivity about the arts and music. With this collaborative project, Music Only and Nous Sommes Athens, want to inspire students on both campuses, UGA and Clarke Central High School, by co-producing a French hip-hop song and video that will be celebrated at the two schools.

Félicitations à tout l'équipe pour ce très beau travail !
