Hip-Hop: How a Generation Is Changing the World
THU, OCT 19, 11:30 AM
Few cultural forces have empowered minority groups like hip-hop has. In recent years, thanks to the power of the internet, this revolutionary wave has firmly touched our shores and seen Australia become the latest hotbed of global hip-hop talent. But this is no accident. It is the effect of an abundance of diverse ethnic communities, combined with a long legacy of street culture, and a generation who knew how to best showcase their stories in an online world. As it has done globally, hip-hop is beginning to influence other areas of life in Australia; from social conscience to music industry operations, to the political landscape. We sit down with key figureheads and thought leaders among the current global generation of Australian Hip-Hop to discuss their remarkable journeys in building community, and how recent lessons learned from the domestic rise of hip-hop can ensure its longevity and sustainable impact for generations to come.
