Event: -

Youths living in Melbourne's western suburbs will once again have a chance to participate in a series of workshops presented by the Hip Hop Academy at Footscray Community Arts Centre (FCAC).

Following a successful program last year, and as part of their three year residency at FCAC, Comedy Festival stars Aamer Rahman and Nazeem Hussain (aka Fear of a Brown Planet) will again curate the program. Hip Hop Academy offers young people from Melbourne's West an opportunity to work with some of Australia's most dynamic hip hop artists.

Over a series of weekend workshops, kids and teenagers will explore hip hop culture while investigating issues of social discrimination and race relations. Participants will express their identities through the creation of new words, beats, fashion and moves. Participants also gain an understanding of the history of hip hop culture

The workshops will cover MCing, beat making, breaking, graffiti, rap and DJing, as well as hip hop fashion, film and documentaries.

Best of all, the workshops are free and participants will have the chance to put on a super jam concert at the end of the sessions.
