ABOUT KILE’S WORLD FOUNDATION
The Kile’s World Foundation intends to offer comprehensive art education to children ranging from ages 10-17; focusing on music, performing,fine and applied arts.
Kile’s World Foundation offers art-based camps with multiple workshops including general instruction in the areas of acting, singing, dance, painting, illustration, music production and digital media. Kile’s World Foundation is poised to eventually open a magnet school with an emphasis on music and the arts. The Foundation wishes to cultivate an environment where developing artists can explore their artistic interests with the guidance and support of our mentors. “Kile is and will always be my muse, he inspires me to do great things both artistically and in general to help others. He was a guiding genius,” says Raymond. The desire of Kiles’ World Foundation is to give young artists the priceless opportunity to be taught and encouraged while developing their skills with great leadership and support. Kile Ishmael Glover was a prodigy who loved, created and exercised many forms of art.
He acted in stage productions, wrote, produced and performed music. Kile was also a budding visual artist; painting abstract art, designing CD covers for his own music and photography. To honor Kile, his mother, Tameka Raymond plans to carry out her son’s well-laid legacy by fulfilling the blueprint that he set with his infinite devotion to the arts.
