The National Arts Centre in Ottawa is hosting an amazing event over the span of eleven days and my group is proud to be part of it. The Hip Hop Theatre Festival will feature live performances, rap battles, panel discussions, and more. Some of the events are ticketed by many of them are free, including our panel Dangerous Minds: In Conversation with Hip Hop Headucatorz.
“Focused on bringing hip hop into the classroom as a teachable tool, Hip Hop Headucatorz are a collective of DJs, producers, emcees, breakers, and graffiti artists who develop ready-to-use resources for teachers. As professional educators themselves, they know how hip hop reaches and inspires students. This panel discussion will explore how hip hop’s 50-year history and ever-shifting culture can connect with, inspire, and motivate students of all ages.”
There will even be light refreshments at the informal social immediately following the panel. This will give us a chance to make connections and explore possible collaborations among fellow educators and hip hop artists.
You can attend in person or tune in live via Zoom.
