Kid President Throws a Pop Up Art Show!

Kid President Throws a Pop Up Art Show!

-I’m gonna help some people
make their neighborhood a little more awesome.
Let’s go. [ Imitating wind whooshing ] [ Laughter ] This is Bailey. She goes to college
in this neighborhood, and she wants to help
the kids who live here play and share
and be great people. -Hello.
-[ Chuckles ] -She and her friends
wanted to see the neighborhood through the eyes of kids, so we’re helping them put
together something special. -And right here, we have the
government housing projects, which have some incredible
people, but are very neglected. -That’s your sister? -And so what we’ve realized is
that we are so close to this. We are literally a block away, and it’s been really fun to be able to kind of try
to bridge that gap between college kids and kids who are here
in the neighborhood. -It all started really simply
with one family, and that was about 10 kids, with their extended family
involved, and then now we have
anywhere from 10 to 70 kids on an average Saturday. -Green light! -Red light! -This wasn’t
a conscious effort to say, “We’re gonna save the world.” This was a, “let’s be neighbors. Let’s be friends.
Let’s hang out.” -So, today, we have a really
cool surprise for you guys. So, we want to give you guys
a camera, and we want you guys
to take pictures of things that you guys think
are beautiful, things that are good, people being good neighbors,
maybe. We’re gonna have an art show,
and we’re gonna have a chance for you guys
to show all of your pictures to all of the people
in your neighborhood. [ All cheering ] -One more time. -[ Speaking indistinctly ] -Can you sit on my lap? -You have to wait.
When we’re ready to… -Okay, let’s go to your house. -Nice. -One of them. -Hey. -They took pictures of all
different places. Some kids took pictures
of flowers. Some took pictures
of their friends. Some took pictures
of their cousins, sidewalks, anything. Then we got
all the kids’ pictures and took them,
got them developed. This is when it got really cool. We got all the kids’ pictures, and we put together
a really big art party. Put their work on display
for everybody to see it. [ Indistinct conversations ] -All the pictures
that you see here were taken by the kids, and as you can see, some of your
friends are on here, your family, your houses,
your cousins. Did everybody see something they
recognize on these pictures? -Together: Yeah!
-Yeah. -[ Speaking indistinctly ] -They were very proud
of their art, which was cool to see,
and to see them, like, take ownership of something
that they had made and something
that they had created. They were able to show beauty and to show where they live
and be proud of it. -Getting to see the kids
be proud of something is a really great feeling. That’s not something you get to see very often
in this neighborhood. -We gave Bailey
the Medal of Awesome and her very own neighborhoodie. -Thank you. [ Cheers and applause ] Oh, their pictures
were so beautiful. To see people taking pictures
of their families and of their moms, of the clover that we plant
in the field to help restore
their playground — just so much joy and — Well, I’m gonna cry. -Everybody, give miss Bailey
a round of applause. [ Cheers and applause ] -To get to hear
a circle full of children that you love with
all of your heart tell you that they love you
is really exciting because I do — I love them
with all of my heart, and — and it’s just
a great feeling. [ Chuckles ] – Watch “Kid President:

  9. those photos are incredible

  10. sniffle Sniff, Grins 😉 That's wonderful. =) 

  11. become a teacher! You will get that beautiful feeling every day.

  12. This is beautiful. Amazing to see the effect of a group of people giving up nothing more than time to spend with children who because of this have something to look forward to and an adult role model. Thanks for sharing Soul Pancake. So inspiring!

  13. awesome! 😀

  14. Ten bucks says that one of those kids that got a camera goes on to become a famous photographer…

  15. That's a hero!


  17. The feels are real ಥ_ಥ

  18. Awesome :]

  19. You're beautiful, Bailey! Keep being awesome!! ♥

  20. That was pretty darn cool… <3 <3 <3

  21. This touched my heart.

  22. She may have just given once of these children a new passion in life. We need more people like her in this world. So touching!

  23. hehehe

  24. It's a beautiful thing to see when a community rallies together to love one another and show that you care, you hardly ever see that anymore but that is something I hope to accomplish through art and philanthropy

  25. So powerful and amazing! Those kids are better at taking photos than me!

  26. Powerful…that's all I have to say

  27. This is amazing! 😀

  28. Absolutely awe-inspiring. It really makes me stop and think about the way that young people take pictures on their phones and cameras…Usually it's about "the moment" or trying to appear like you're having a good time. Sometimes we forget that the littlest things can make us happy like a flower or a bicycle or even the sky. I think I may get a polaroid camera soon and try this little art project myself with my friends and community. I think it would be lots of fun! 🙂 Thank you Kid President/SoulPancake team for making this video.

  29. I love this idea. Bringing it up to my nonprofit. Xo

  30. why people did unliked this cool video??? I don't understand. They can say "I have no idea with this" instead of "unlike" action which shows that they are heartless.

  31. Made me tear up :")
    Lovely <3

  32. Love <3 

  33. I would love to be a part of this 🙂

  34. Awe love this and her

  35. I love this. It often frustrates me when people travel to Africa (where I'm from) to be their saviors, while you can just turn to your neighbor and be a friend. 

  36. Reminds me of one of my first Photo classes, for elementary school aged kids. All were developed and matted, and a friend allowed us to exhibit in her gallery, They also printed their favorites on postcards and those were for sale. Sold out, and they were so excited. Many must be in their mid-30s now, wonder how they are doing camera-wise.

  37. There are still great people in this terrible world!

  38. who is this girl with the video? Brunette. I'm in love 🙁

  39. Love it!

  40. OMG LUCKY! They get free cameras >:l

  41. The power of one person having an idea, then getting a little hep with it… absolutely incredible! Young people like Bailey can change the word!

  42. I love how sometimes the simplest ideas are the most beautiful and powerful. This made me smile until my cheeks hurt!

  43. You don't need a lot of money to make a difference to children life.

  44. ,„ xxx a x w,

  45. Bailey and all her friends and kids are AWESOME.


  47. Is that a South African accent I hear Jordan?

  48. I'm crushing on Bailey a little bit…

  49. Was this in Savannah, GA??

    This goes to show how you can impact the lives of children around you in a positive way. And in doing so, they are affecting your life right back. Changing lives, one smile at a time! <3
