Our LC Hip-Hop History Project consisted of 4 weeks of workshops in the art forms: Graffiti, MCing, Dance, Food & DJing/ Turntablism.

These workshops allowed young people to explore the vibrant heritage of Black Arts in Highfields Leicester, which started from the 80s onwards. Young people learnt about the different art forms that contributed to Hip-Hop culture and shaped it into what it is today.

They were taught by specialists who were physically involved in the early Hip-Hop scene, and are experts in their fields.
