Annual Hip Hop Conference

April 23–25th, 2024

Created by Afro-descendant populations in the United States, Hip Hop is a genre that has proliferated nearly every corner of the globe. From its early inception until now, Hip Hop has evolved into not only an artform but also a cultural movement inciting social action. During this, our tenth annual conference, we will explore how Hip Hop has reached a global audience and acted as a catalyst for the formation of new worldviews for the last fifty years.
