Background

in 2014 and 2015 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 seeked 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. We facilitated rap workshops and it was a great success. We are therefore happy to continue the partnership with the Municipality in 2016!

Project Info

in 2016 RAPOLITICS will facilitate up to 15 free rap workshops at schools around Copenhagen. The workshops focuses on discrimination. 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 a set of teaching materials, which will prepare the students to work with the theme and as a preparation for the interactive and creative rap workshops. The workshops can be booked through the Municipality of Copenhagen – click here!
