The 6th Annual Hip Hop Congress Conference Taking Place In July

The 6th Annual Hip Hop Congress Conference will take place in Athens, OH July 4th through July 8th, where chapters nation-wide and Hip-Hop artists will come together and discuss issues related to urban music.

The Hip Hop Congress is a non-Profit organization that was created to ignite civic action and cultural creativity within the Hip-Hop community.

With over 35 chapters throughout the country, Hip-Hop Congress works with artists, organizers, promoters and a host of other universities and institutions to unite, educate, and empower individuals through Hip-Hop music.

The goal of this year's national conference will be to continue developing a national service infrastructure alongside a variety of other national organizations, student groups, artists and partners.

Workshops are scheduled to include intensive sessions on the initial four elements of Hip-Hop, interactive discussions on Health Care, International Hip-Hop, Hip-Hop and Education, Women in Hip-Hop, Event Planning, the Recording Industry, Youth Violence and more.

Additionally, each night will feature performances showcasing independent acts.
