Since its underground inception in the Bronx in the 1970s, Hip Hop has grown to be a global artistic movement, which expresses the imagination, experiences, and unique language of Black and other underprivileged communities through djing, rapping, breaking, graffiti, fashion design, and writing. 

In this first installment of the HHSL&LC Artist Talks, visual artist and illustrator Adrian Hayles and rapper DillanPonders will discuss the power of Hip Hop as a tool for storytelling and creative expression, as well as the creative processes and practices behind their own work. 

This event is intended for emerging artists and students in the Toronto community, who are interested in harnessing their imagination in new and creative ways and in subverting ‘traditional’ approaches to storytelling.
