CULTURE

Hip-hop is not only about moves, music, style and expressions. Hip-hop comes with its own way of thinking, behaving and living that is reflected in everything you do. Hip-hop has a history and culture that is inextricably linked to social issues and society as a whole. It is important to educate and share knowledge about this. To better understand the culture, but also your own identity. That is why we develop relevant programs with cultural leaders and ambassadors from our communities.
