    The University of Hip-Hop (UHipHop)


    The University of Hip-Hop is a multidisciplinary school of the streets arts. UHipHop youth learn how to use breakdance, graffiti, rap, and dee-jaying for the purposes of self-empowerment and community beautification. UHipHop was founded by twenty youth from Hubbard HS in Chicago, Illinois in 1996 with the assistance of the Southwest Youth Collaborative. UHipHop has established kilombos (branches) at other high schools, elementary schools, park districts, community centers, and cultural organizations. At the present time UHipHop is conducting teach-ins on how to incorporate multiple disciplines and the hip-hop arts in community projects and classroom lessons. UHipHop students have also begun “UHipHop Global”, a program dedicated to mapping and identifying community organizations worldwide that are creating hip-hop based initiatives. UHipHop instructors and students have done hundreds of public arts projects and have led the way in developing interdisciplinary strategies for the use of hip-hop for community development. More information about UHipHop can be found at uhiphop.uchicago.edu.
