Since emerging from the Bronx over 40 years ago Hip-Hop music has gone from an underground phenomenon to a World-Wide form of expression for culture, identity, politics, and fashion.

What does Hip-Hop culture mean to you? Does it inspire the way you dress, speak, view the world? How much of an influence does Hip Hop music have in your life?

Museum of the African Diaspora is seeking high school students to participate in a paid summer program; The Will to Adorn: Remixed. In our program, students will learn how to interview individuals, videotape and present fashion and cultural practices, edit videos, organize photos, create blogs, and archive their work. Participants will have the opportunity to meet, interview, and engage with local Hip-Hop musicians, visual artists, clothing designers, and other Bay Area style makers connected to the culture of Hip-Hop.

The dates of the program will be June 27 through August 3, meeting Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays with July 4th off for the holiday. Full participation for all six weeks is mandatory. Regrettably, students with schedule conflicts due to other obligations cannot be considered for the program.
