You Need Hip Hop Ya Heard?: Performance & Workshop

Hip Hop is a global culture that is also the culture of young people. More than music, hip hop culture is the styles, sounds, visuals, and technology that is pervasive in our society. We need to flip education on its head by responding to, and acknowledging the culture that educators serve: youth culture. This presentation will introduce successful and proven strategies for helping youth succeed through a hip hop paradigm, and feature talks and performances by CodeScty Universal Hip Hop Museum, Science with Tom, Arts Corps, and special guests.
