The 2023 Hip Hop 50 Summit is a two-day event designed to showcase Hip Hop culture throughout the last 50 years. In honoring Hip Hop’s rich history and depth, the Summit will feature a wide range of themes—from Fashion to Economics—that speak to how and why the genre has evolved into the global phenomenon it is today. The Summit’s interactive workshops will invite visitors to learn hands-on from artists who specialize in various elements of Hip Hop, including DJs, break dancers, and graffiti artists. Hip Hop pioneers, performers, and scholars will lead panel discussions about the history of Hip Hop and its cultural significance in many different sectors of society.
