“Fight between my conscience and the skin that’s on my body /

Man I need to fight the power but I need that new Ferrari”

Vince Staple, Lift Me Up

The Power of Hip Hop: EXCHANGE is a unique academic seminar that explores the role, challenges and potential of hip hop culture in facilitating positive social change in global contexts, and its role as a site of resistance and identity.

Featuring a programme of academic panels, keynote papers, artist performances and practitioner presentations, this event harnesses In Place of War’s vast international network of grassroots artists and blends it with a rich selection of researchers exploring issues including but not limited to hip-hop and gender, race, religion, commerce, and conflict.
