Using Media to address the role, images, and treatment of women in Hip-Hop we critique and disrupt status quo narratives and present investigations about value systems and structures of violence and human value, the politics of aesthetics, and women of color feminism. Participants walk away with a greater understanding of the value of women in Hip Hop as a culture across disciplines.: Art (Graffiti/StreetArt etc.), Dance (B-Girling), Technology (DJing/Music Production/Video), Words (Emceeing/FreeStyling/Writing/Rhyming/Poetry), and Culture (the Knowledge Element of reading, observing video and listening to audio media, discussion)
The Foundation brings international, national and local girls and women together in Detroit through music, dance, visual & performing arts, fashion, film, with emphasis on Hip Hop specific media: Open Mic, Freestyle Cipher, Graffiti, to present a series of showcases, performances and workshops supporting, and creating empowering images of Women.
