Students from Challa Gardens Primary School in Adelaide were recently treated to a day of music, dance and culture thanks to a visit from Indigenous HIP HOP Projects.
The group of seven energetic and athletic members held workshops with students combining hip hop and Indigenous culture. They then thrilled their audience with a hip hop performance.
Indigenous Hip Hop Projects is a team of artists who encourage self-expression through movement, music and art. They visited the school as part of our arts-based learning program Creating Brighter Futures (or nyuntumpa nintiringanyi meaning ‘for you to learn about’).
A big thank you to everyone who was involved in the day, which is sure to stay in the hearts and minds of all who experienced it.
