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 seeks high school students for 2020 to participate in a paid summer fellowship; 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 2020 program will be determined in the Spring when recruitment opens. Full participation for all seven weeks is mandatory. Please check back during Black History Month for further information on the program in the summer of 2020.
