August 2013 / Casa de Cultura Municipal de Plaza de la Revolución

Created in 2005 by the project La Fabri_K, thc Cuban Hip-Hop Symposium aims to promote the exchange of ideas between artists and activists who work in several community projects which contribute to the development of the hip-hop movement in Cuba. The event includes rap dancing, graffiti art, a series of films and a colloquium with discussions on hip-hop culture and issues regarding this type of music, which has delved into controversial aspects of Cuban life, such as racism and emerging economic inequalities. Both international and Cuban musicians will perform during the event. The mornings have been reserved for discussions and workshops.
