We Are Hip Hop Youth Festival

Since 2005, ElevArte has supported, empowered and employed over 250 #atpromise youth and welcomed more than 3,000 attendees to the We Are Hip Hop Youth Festival. The only event of it's kind, completely organized by Chicago YOUTH, striving for peace and Hip Hop awareness. Every August, the Chicago festival showcases positive aspects of Hip Hop culture while highlighting Chicago MC's, turntablists, street artists and breakers selected by youth participating in the We Are Hip Hop planning program. The festival is used as a tool to teach young people essential skills such as music business, leadership and community building.

Join us as we celebrate the powerful movement of Hip Hop culture and resilience with music, breakdance and graffiti art.
