Hip Hop and the Spoken Word as a Tool for Positive Social Transformation

Hamilton Centre for Civic Inclusion (HCCI) invites you to “Hip Hop and the Spoken Word as a Tool for Positive Social Transformation.”

During this event, HCCI will show a documentary called ‘Business as Usual: The Exploitation of Hip Hop.’ This documentary examines how economic interests drive Hip Hop and how that affects youth.

Our invited guest speaker Harjot Natt will facilitate a discussion on building a better community through the Spoken Word and Hip Hop tradition and Hip Hop as a positive tool for social transformation.

Nea Reid and poets of Hamilton Youth Poetry Slam will also demonstrate through performance how people use the Spoken Word to build awareness about social justice issues.

The evening will end with a Q&A and an interactive poetry activity with all attendees.

When: Thursday, July 10
Time: 6pm to 9pm (downtown street parking free after 6pm)
Where: Hamilton Centre for Civic Inclusion
267 King Street East, Downtown Hamilton
Cost: Free event!
