Calling all Sneakerheads! Have you ever wondered how your favorite sneakers are designed? Join us for an in-depth workshop with Cory and Tasha Strong, the co-founders of Dirty Soles Footwear Group, Newark’s First Black-Owned Sneaker Consignment Shop, and Incubator as we learn about sneaker design and have the opportunity to create your own shoe design using Graffiti Techniques.

This will be an intimate zoom classroom experience to allow our students to learn from and connect with Professional Artists to increase their knowledge of the field.

Join us for a rare opportunity to learn about the world of footwear and design and learn more about NJPAC’s Hip Hop Arts & Culture program.

About Dirty Soul Footwear Grouphttps://www.dirtysolesunlimited.com/

The Dirty Soles team consists of a conglomerate of business professionals proficient in footwear manufacturing, sales, marketing, business development, social media & influencer marketing as well as shoe design. Collectively we have established and continue to perfect what we call “the incub8tor.” This unique space is dedicated to identifying and supporting local entrepreneurs, designers, artists, culinary specialists, and writers.

The “Studio Sole” retail location in Newark was born from the incub8tor initiative and is the first black-owned sneaker consignment shop in the city. Studio Sole also dually functions as an exclusive footwear academy where students learn the inner workings of the sneaker industry in an effort to introduce them to new career opportunities.
