The BEATS & MINDS Hip Hop Conference was held on November 3, 2019.

The conference is a cultural experience embodying the idea of

Locally Rooted, Globally Connected through Hip Hop.

Featuring panel discussions, engaging breakout sessions, and much more, we aimed to bring together topics that include local perspectives and international voices. As Hip Hop has spread from its development among primarily Black youth in New York , it is now a global community with local practitioners everywhere putting their own cultural spin on its elements.

This conference emphasized the socially conscious & positive connections that Hip Hop has built as a movement, and the space it has allowed for a diverse set of voices from all over the world to tell their stories.

From then til now, while honoring and never neglecting its cultural roots in the Black community.
