This collaborative production process seeks to discover, coach and promote talent among marginalised communities in Malta through songwriting and hip-hop workshops.
By scouting talent from different communities in Malta, Community Hip Hop provides a platform for youngsters to express complex thoughts and emotions through creative channels. Song and breakdance sessions expose youngsters to local youth culture and participants are encouraged to blend this with their own cultural traditions. These budding artists are also trained to participate in local culture through performance. Throughout, participants are also encouraged to keep personal diaries, allowing young creatives to reflect on meaningful or difficult issues that they might be facing in their lives.
The second edition of Community Hip Hop builds upon the 6 songs produced through the first run of this successful workshop, while also working towards new original content.
