  NESB Youth Hip Hop Project

Organisation

Macarthur Migrant Resource Centre

Project Description

This is a year long project that will enable NESB youth in the Campbelltown Local Government an opportunity to participate in a large scale community development project.

The underlying principles in this project are to promote NESB youth culture through positive images such as Hip Hop, and a creative approach to deal with real issues NESB youth face in today’s society and link up with cultural identity and self identity.

A project such as this will give young people the opportunity to incorporate popular culture and let them take charge of it, in a transformative process for them. By allowing young people to produce a community owned project it’s a starting point to get young people to have hope that they can change their individual situation and take control of their own representation. By providing young people with the opportunity to participate and be part of a cultural development project such as the production of a CD, young people will come to an awareness of their own power as culture makers and thus employ that power to solve problems and address issues of deep concern to themselves and their communities.

The process of this work embodies a critical relationship to culture, individual identity, community identity and social change. Ultimately, the young people have been involved in identifying of the project and they will be represented in the steering committee and involved in all decision making.
