The short course acts as an introduction to understanding Hip-Hop as a culture, and developing familiarity with its 5 elements, while also considering both the culture’s historical and modern-era contexts.


Over 6 sessions, learn about each of the 5 elements of Hip-Hop and how they manifest in the modern era: Breaking, DJing, Emceeing, Graffiti, and Knowledge of Self.

Participants will develop a fundamental understanding of Hip-Hop as a culture informed by its historical context. Join Dr. Francesca D’Amico-Cuthbert and Hart House Hip Hop Ed Community Connector Marcus Singleton as they take you on a fantastic voyage through Hip-Hop Culture by engaging in a series of group activities, listening to a wide range of seminal Hip-Hop recordings, and engaging with practitioners as they discuss their experiences in Hip Hop.

This 6-session course is designed for anyone interested in Hip-Hop. No equipment required. 


All participants will receive a Hip Hop Culture Certificate, and U of T students will receive Co-Curricular Record (CCR) Credit, upon completion of the short course.
