What to Expect
2023 Can't Stop Hip Hop Conference
This year, we are amping up the community gathering and celebratory vibes in honor of Hip Hop's 50th. We're planning for a mixture of featured performances, invited speakers, open mics, community cypher, and interactive workshops facilitated by local and national Hip Hop artists, educators, and organizers. There will be intergenerational panels, youth and adult led sessions, opportunities to dance, write, rhyme, draw, and have a great time as we take the conference outside to really feel that sense of community gathering foundational to the culture. This event is free and open to all ages. Register to attend now.
