Ty Alexander

Opening up for powerhouse talents like Lucky Daye, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Estelle, Bj The Chicago Kid, and Lupe Fiasco, has made her the new kid on the block to watch. Ty Alexander is an open format dj from Baltimore, MD who believes that music is the one language we all can speak simultaneously, eloquently, loudly, and passionately. Ty has developed deep relationships and spun for brands like Amazon Music, Patron, Maker’s Mark, Ava DuVernay’s ARRAY NOW, and more. When you get to experience her spin in-person, you immediately understand and feel the passion, the love, and the respect she has for music and the art of curating a vibe (some folks call it deejaying). She’s an old soul moving the music with her hands and always focusing on the feeling of the music while helping you create a perfectly aligned message at your event.

Edgar Reyes

Edgar Reyes is a multimedia artist and educator based in the Baltimore and Washington D.C. area. Reyes’ work invites viewers to think about the people, places, and connections they carry with them. His practice draws on the specifics of his own life, and reflections of shared experiences of resettlement and migration. Through his art making he explores his family’s Mexican and Indigenous roots. Many of his projects are autobiographical and a reflection of his personal journey as an undocumented youth in the United States. Reyes develops projects in a collaborative platform as an act of healing and as a resource to creatively engage others in our connection to the land and our narratives of survival.
