In keeping with its role as cultural landscapist, the Committee for Relevant Art (CORA) is billed to convene its first Hip Hop conference as a direct intervention in the blossoming of a popular youth culture and its attendant music and sound.

Set to hold on Sunday the 26th of July 2009 from 2pm till 6pm at the main Exhibition Hall, National Theatre, Iganmu, Lagos, this first Hip Hop Conference is planned to provide a platform for leading proponents of hip hop music and hip hop culture and other enthusiasts to critically evaluate the musical output / cultural production from amongst their cadre in the past decade, in peer review sessions moderated by CORA.

This conference is intended to provide material for scholars and journalists working in the field of youth culture and to aggregate a cross section of perspectives on the successes and failures of a fast growing industry from the leading proponents of the music genre in question. The event will be covered extensively by the press in print and electronic media.
