About "The Foundation of 5eGallery Celebrating Women in Hip Hop"

Are you a woman in hip hop? Then The Foundation of 5eGallery Celebrating Women in Hip Hop is the place for you to share your voice and life experiences with women within the culture.

The Foundation of 5eGallery Celebrating Women in Hip Hop is committed to creating a stronger platform for supporting, inspiring, and empowering all women in hip hop. The Foundation of 5eGallery Celebrating Women in Hip Hop further promotes career and professional development among women. We strive to preserve the divine feminine space within hip hop culture.

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.

Since 2007 the 5eGallery has been leading a 21st century cultural movement that uses Hip Hop for civic engagement, youth empowerment, life-skills development, building community, and most importantly nurturing people.
