About the project:

Our project uses the positive power of Hip Hop culture to create inspiring experiences alongside with young people (YP) who have been, or felt, excluded from traditional cultural activities. The philosophy of Hip Hop is centred around community, connecting with others and enjoyment and our work has been shown to enable YP to build up confidence, understand team working and develop leadership skills, reducing crime and developing safer communities. The project aims are to a) build trust with/amongst young people through activities current/relevant to their lives in their own communities; b) build understanding between those from different communities / cultures through a shared interest in Hip Hop and, c) develop their skills, confidence, wellbeing and aspirations.
