Since its birth in the 1970s Bronx, hip hop has had a conscience.

Today, graffiti artists, mc’s, breakdancers and DJs across the world are empowering themselves and their communities through hip hop, creating real social and political change.

They are empowering women in Colombia, creating political movements in Burkina Faso, fighting for freedom of speech in Zimbabwe, and challenging religious stereotypes in the UK. All the time creating incredible raps, rhymes and beats.

Through music, dance, MCing, turntabling, exhibition and talks, come and meet some of the world’s most revolutionary hip hop artists as they tell us their personal experiences of hip hop changing the world.

Ask why hip hop is such a powerful tool for transformation.

Discover how people across the globe are using it to change lives.
