Our mission is to provide training and support for students who aspire to enhance their creative talents. Each and every child desires freedom to creatively express themselves. We provide an environment that encourages freedom of expression, serves as a resource for families, and empowers via education.
Founded in 1997 by Afeni Shakur, mother of the multi-talented Tupac Shakur, the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation (TASF) originally began as the Shakur Family Foundation. Afeni formed the Foundation as a way to bring quality arts training to our young people. A broad range of training is offered via the Annual Performing Arts Day Camp held at the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts (home of the Foundation). Disciplines include creative writing, vocal technique, acting, stage set design, dance, poetry & spoken word, and the business of entertainment. The Performing Arts Day Camp is open to students ages 12-18. Application will be posted under the PACamp link soon.
The Foundation has also hosted Essay Competitions throughout the U.S., charity Golf Tournaments, & awarded scholarships to students pursuing undergraduate degrees.

MORE ABOUT TUPAC
Tupac accomplished a lot during the span of his life. At an early age, he wrote and organized family productions, casting himself as the lead and his older cousins in supporting roles.
Tupac formally trained at the 127th Street Ensemble and Baltimore School for the Arts. At the age of twelve, Tupac experienced his first formal stage role as the character 'Travis' in the stage play 'Raisin In the Sun.' The play was performed at the prestigious Apollo Theatre in Harlem.
Tupac was eventually cast in several feature films and recorded several chart topping albums. In fact, he released the first ever double hip-hop CD and remains the top selling Hip-Hop artist of all time! Tupac accomplished a lot before his murder at the age of 25. Today, years after his physical departure, Tupac's gift- his creative talent- continues to inspire others around the world!
