Urban Art & Social Transformation

To commemorate the second anniversary of the international  project “Urban Art & Social Transformation” (UA&ST) about the professionalization of the different elements of hip hop, Iniciativa Internacional Joven and El circulo breaking will organize several activities with the collaboration of the Area of Youth and Area of Culture of Málaga City Council.

The UA&ST project was an international training course that has been carried out in Málaga in November 2014 with the participation of 5 European countries (Portugal, Italy, France, Cyprus and Spain).

Thursday 1st of December:
We will meet in the University of Málaga (Faculty of Education Science) where different urban artists will share their experiences, opinions and points of view on topics such as the use of urban art as a tool for social transformation, the development of artistic talents as a motivation for learning, the professionalization of hip hop elements, etc.
During the table discussion we will present the international project we are currently carrying out called “Urban Art & Social Entrepreneurship”. After the discussion, two free workshops have been planned, one about urban dance and another one about literary creativity (rap).
