An artist, an educator, a entertainer, an emcee, and a rapper. All of these traits describe Demone Carter, a role model who has had a huge impact on his community. In 2004, Demone started his journey on a path that has ended up impacting many areas of San Jose. Through art Demone Carter has been able to improve the quality of living for the youth and the residents of the Mayfair community.

Through his work with The School of Arts and Culture, Demone runs a project called Celebrate Mayfair. Celebrate Mayfair is a project conducted to improve the quality of life in the Mayfair community of San Jose by bringing art and beautification programs to the community. “…we give residents of the Mayfair community an opportunity to express themselves through both artistically and politically,” says Demone.
