4ESYDNEY CONFERENCE An in-depth look into HipHop and industry culture

Join us as we explore the bright lights and dark nights of the creative industries and the growing HipHop culture which is driving youth-led movements throughout the world. Take a journey through the eyes of industry professionals, artists, academics and HipHop pioneers.

The conference is structured around interactive panels, discussions, roundtables, workshops and networking events. We'll be having honest uncensored conversations together, unpacking issues around industry sustainability, cultural appropriation, entrepreneurship and the responsibility of the artist.

Be part of the conversation as we put the HipHop scene and creative industries under the microscope, dissecting and analysing what is really going on, finding new ways to make it healthier and more sustainable.

This is your backstage pass to all things you want and need to know!
