Craft your own hip hop song.
The Australian Music Vault is a new exhibition at Arts Centre Melbourne that will celebrate the past, present and future of Australian contemporary music. Delving into the extensive Australian Performing Arts Collection, objects will be on display for schools and the general public that will inspire and engage, telling the stories of the Australian music industry and its fans.
Hip hop culture has, and continues to be, a forum through which people can express opinions, raise issues, and have their voices heard. In Australia, hip hop offers artists from diverse backgrounds with important conversations to start, a platform to promote hip hop’s core values of respect, inclusion and individuality.
In this workshop, participants will be encouraged to think about issues that affect them and impact their lives. Working with experienced lyricists at The Channel, participants will be led in crafting those ideas into lyrics. Participants will then have the opportunity to record their lyrics with a backing beat, experimenting with rhyme and flow.

Student work will be made available for download after the workshop via a link emailed to the teacher making the booking.
