10th Element of Hip Hop Speakers Symposium

March 7th - 11:00-2;00- McCaw Hall

The symposium is grounded in the backdrop of the 10th Element of Hip Hop: Health & Wellness and explores how young people and their families can benefit from taking part in this new health paradigm. Many young people are faced with severe health issues and hip-hop culture is responding to those needs by informing and inspiring a whole new generation to make health and wellness a priority in their lives by speaking in a language they all understand to move them in a positive direction through our empowering events.

The Symposium seeks to shift consciousness through exploring hip hop culture in the context of health and wellness. We also discuss the power of art, music and culture to influence and heal our community as well as the importance of connecting with the land through exploring nature, gardening and farming. This communal gathering provides celebrity role models, experts and vital information to further strengthen and empower those who want to take control of their health.
