Workshop Objective: The objective of this workshop is to:

Provide an introduction and working model that students can use to make changes in their community through music and permaculture.

Learning Outcomes: By the end of this workshop students will:

  1. Develop an understanding of the role Hip-Hop can play in the community.
  2. Reflect and describe individual experiences, applying Hip Hop techniques to create a rhyme.

III. Organise and evaluate a community event.

  1. Introduce the design principles of permaculture.

This workshop has been designed as a taster session to the Hip Hop Garden course.

It introduces the main concepts underpinning the May Project (Hip Hop, Permaculture and Events) and allows students to gain practical knowledge and experience in all three areas. Students will then apply Hip-Hop techniques to reflect on their experiences, aiming to produce a poem, rap or rhyme. The day will culminate in a final performance of these rhymes and a presentation about the day.

Limited to 15 people. Ages preferable 18-25. People from non-white backgrounds and women

This session is run by, and hosted at, the May Project Gardens –  A team of grassroots activists working to educate and empower urban communities to live sustainably.
