Rock the School Bells 12: YOUTH Conference 2019 - Heart & Soul

Saturday, March 23, 2019, 4:00 PM

YOUTH CONFERENCE On Sat. March 23rd, 2019 - Rock the School Bells 12 invites youth to immerse themselves in dynamic Hip Hop educational workshops dedicated, but not limited to, literary arts, dance culture/styles, graffiti art, Hip Hop hxstory, entrepreneurship, DJing, and social justice issues through Hip Hop. THEME: HEART & SOUL This year we will highlight workshops that support our youth and community in fostering holistic health, healing, and well-being through and with Hip Hop. Hip Hop emerged out of the inner city amid long-standing social and political violence. As a recreational space and cultural movement, urban youth (specifically Black and Puerto Rican) created Hip Hop out of desire but also, necessity. It was a way to care for each other--a place of safekeeping, resistance, and humanity. Nearly five decades have passed since the emergence of Hip Hop but our sociopolitical contexts remain the same. Institutions still do not prioritize us. Our communities are still under duress. Keeping our hearts and souls intact is still challenging. Yet, in spite of our existing realities, one way we still know how to care for our communities and selves is through and with Hip Hop.   Conference ticket includes: Breakfast and lunch 2 breakout sessions of interactive workshops   The event is hosted by Skyline College’s Center for Innovative Practices through Hip Hop Education & Research (CIPHER) & the Division of Student Equity and Support Programs.   For youth under 18 who will be participating in the dance workshops, a parent/guardian must sign a waiver for them to participate.
