Breaking Myths with Rap
Stemplet Campaign in Denmark against Discrimination
Background

The Municipality of Copenhagen invited RAPOLITICS to be part of their new ‘anti-myth’ campaign. The campaign was based on a survey on discrimination in Copenhagen that maps prejudices of different minorities. The campaign sought to clear up and put an end to negative imaginations of the “Other” and to make young people reflect on their own and other’s prejudices

Project Info

RAPOLITICS participated in the campaign with 8 rap workshops. The workshops focussed on prejudices through and within rap and poetry. Many rappers use their music to put words on experiences with prejudices and discrimination. And the hip-hop culture itself is full of prejudices. RAPOLITICS has produced a new set of teaching materials, which prepared the students to work with the theme and as a preparation for the interactive and creative rap workshops. The workshops were booked through the Municipality of Copenhagen – read more in Danish here.
