Event Description

On August 11th, 1973, the world was changed forever.

Learn about the roots of Hip-hop with Que Rock and the Ready to Rock Crew as they discuss life in The Bronx in the 1970s, the art forms that were created through shaping what was available, and the roles and responsibilities of hip-hop artists as they provide a face of the culture to the world. They’ll teach you about the pioneers, the connections between the four main elements, and the healing effects that allowed people with nothing to create one of the most diverse and rich cultures on the face of the planet. In addition to the main elements, Que Rock will discuss his Indigenous American roots, and how many of the practices of his culture integrated with hip-hop.

Following the presentation from the Crew, learn about the intricacies of DJing with a presentation from London-based DJ Jimi Needles, which will be followed by an open-panel discussion featuring Chali 2na, founder of Ozomatli and Jurassic 5, and other key innovators of Canada's west coast hip hop culture, including Erica Dee, Degree One, and Ostwelve.
