RAPOLITICS has teamed up with Revolution Records for many years. We first met them in Alexandria in 2012 and they visited Denmark same year. The research tour also resulted in a partnership project from 2013 to 2014 with a series of activities in Egypt including the establishment of a new recording studio and training center for youth in Alexandria. Revolution Records guested Denmark again in 2013 as a part of the RapLab MENA project, which was a training camp for raptivists. Finally, we have embarked in a partnership between RAPOLITICS, Revolution Records and Vallekilde Folk High School in 2014, which so far has resulted in a youth exchange between Danish and Egyptian youth this year.
Revolution Records visited Denmark in September 2015 for a tour to four folk high schools. The purpose of their tour was to engage Danish youth in the situation of young people in Egypt post-revolution. What is happening in Egypt? What do young people think about the political situation? What do they dream about? The meeting with Danish youth was all about sharing stories and engaging in an enriching dialogue through workshops, debates, concerts, tracks and other awareness-raising activities.
