Audience members will be encouraged to participate in performances by local artists, learn about the historical usage of hip hop as an inspirational musical narrative, engage in discussion, and view a photography exhibit by photojournalist Wildstyle which captures the creative journeys of some of Indy’s finest hip hop artists.
