Who are The Illaskan Assassins?
We the Illaskan Assassins, are a b-boy crew whose members have been dancing together since 2003. In an effort to spread our love for hip-hop culture, we have given back to the community by hosting workshops and b-boy competitions all over Alaska, including native villages in Rural Alaska. In addition, we collaborate with non-profit organizations in performances, workshops, and community outreach programs. Members of the Illaskan Assassins have taught the arts of hip-hop culture around the world, in places such as: China, Nepal, Mexico, Peru, London, and all over the United States. We will continue to support and share the art of hip-hop locally and globally today.
What is Supply the Skillz?
Supply the Skillz is a hip-hop event that was first held back in 2003. The event included a 3v3 b-boy competition, emcee battle, and a DJ showcase. This event produced such a big spark in the hip-hop community in Alaska, which led to Supply the Skillz 2, as well as many other b-boy competitions to follow. Supply the Skillz was a stepping-stone to more outlets for hip-hop culture to grow in the community. This is the 10th Year Anniversary of that historic event.

Risks and challenges
A big challenge would be attendance. Members of Illaskan Assassins are skilled in social media, audio/video editing, and graphic design. These skill sets will help create attention to this project. Through workshops and community outreach we'll be able to promote to diverse age groups in different areas of Alaska. With our combined experiences in different forms of media, aided by helpful friends connected in advertising, we can increase awareness to all types of demographics.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
