• Hip Hop Education
    Year 1

    Hip hop education and artistic expression. It's not just about music. It's beats, rhymes, life and learning.

About

Hip Hop education matters because it represents a powerful way to feel connect- ed to ourselves and the people around us. Community, creativity, self-expression, and learning are all integral parts of Hip Hop's DNA.

These pillars complement and expand on the existing goals of Hart House. We strive to enrich the lives of our students through the creative engagement with arts, culture, dialogue, recreation, wellness, and community-engaged learning. At Hart House, students encounter an inclusive and diverse space where they can enrich their souls, expand their minds, and strength- en their bodies. All of which takes place through a framework dedicated to equity, social justice, and wellness.

What we aim to achieve

  • Encourage Holistic Learning

    Hip-Hop is a collaborative culture. Our programming encourages interactions with artists, scholars, and community leaders outside the normalized University sphere; allowing for unique learning experiences not normally found in the classroom.

  • Break Down Cultural Barriers on Campus

    We aim to showcase Hip-Hop culture in places it's never existed before. Embracing and evolving to connect with students and the community in new ways that matter to them. This is constantly done through a framework of equity and inclusion based
     

  • Build Connection & Belonging

    By bringing together students and the greater Hip-Hop community, we are encouraging everyone to use Hip-Hop as a vehicle to feel connected and supported. We hope to spark involvement, and thus the development of community, through our programming.
