REMIXING THE ART OF SOCIAL CHANGE: A HIP-HOP APPROACH 2010 is not your average conference or gathering. This year it takes place for six days from Nov. 16-21. It’s a teach-in where folks from across the world come together in Washington, D.C. to participate in a unique experience that’s both action-oriented and community-based.
The teach-in outlines the tools and resources necessary to develop curriculum, programs, and artistic and scholarly work based on hip-hop culture. The presenters at Remixing the Art of Social Change are the artists and educators who never gave up on hip-hop and are still actively working through it to promote love, peace, unity and having fun. Last year’s teach-in featured pioneer Afrika Bambaataa and scholars, youth, organizations, artists and activists from around the world. This year’s REMIXING THE ART OF SOCIAL CHANGE 2010 will feature films, promote advocacy, networking, community building, hold a career fair, present live music, interactive presentations, peer-to-peer skill sharing, arts exhibitions, and of course group ciphers!
SOYA’s Khadijah Ali-Coleman is one of this year’s host/selection committee and will also be a panelist. View below for panel details. Click here for the full teach-in agenda.
