The Cosmic Demise tour of fundraiser events for Youth Art & Music Programs will include a film premiere event at the Pico Youth & Family Center in Santa Monica on October 7th 2022, music concert at The Smell in Downtown Los Angeles in January 2023 and skateboard contest at Stoner Skate Plaza in January. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Pico Youth & Family Center, a non-profit organization in Santa Monica that gives the youth who can’t normally afford to make music in a studio or film with camera equipment access to resources.
My name is Ali Bilal, a 23 year old African American visual artist, videographer, musician, skateboarder and the creator of Cosmic Demise clothing brand. Everyday after high school I would spend time inside the Pico Youth & Family Center to use the music studio and film equipment. Now, I’m an alumni of the Pico Youth & Family Center who now teaches the film program to the youth.
