Design Stories Behind the Cultural Global Force of Hip Hop

The fabric of NYC is one of visual language and there is no denying that Hip Hop is at the helm of this conversation. From its beginnings in NYC to its global reach, the culture of Hip Hop is a creative force stretching far beyond its music.

The image-making behind Hip Hop culture started from a place of community and perseverance — working with artists and music labels to make a mark — while growing the talent, creativity, and craft over generations of designers and art directors.

Join us for a conversation with Michelle WillemsJulian AlexanderAmaechi Uzoigwe, and moderator Timmhotep Aku, we’ll hear stories from behind the scenes on the influence and evolution of design’s role in how Hip Hop drives culture forward.
