Introductory youth hip-hop workshop

A workshop by WordUp Collective.

Led by some of the rising stars of the Irish urban music and spoken word scenes, this workshop will use perhaps some the most recognised cultural movements of the moment to give students an inspiring and enlightening experience – using hip-hop, rap music and poetry to unlock their creativity, increase confidence and teach new skills.

Attendees will be provided with an introduction to hip-hop culture and music, giving them the opportunity to explore a range of new experiences:

Introduction to hip-hop culture and history
Writing to a beat
Language, cadence and flow
Lyricism and songwriting
Performance skills
Final performance of own rap

With experience performing at festivals such as Longitude, Electric Picnic, Other Voices and St Patrick’s Festival / National Concert Hall, as well as critical and commercial success, WordUp Collective’s facilitators are able to inspire and create a connection with their students.
