An open-mic/speakout organized and driven by DC youth in collaboration with the Kennedy Center's one mic Hip-Hop festival. From the invite: "From March 28 to April 12, 2014, the Kennedy Center, in collaboration with Hi-ARTS, the producers of the Hip-Hop Theater Festival, presents One Mic: Hip-Hop Culture Worldwide, a festival celebrating this uniquely American art form. The festival highlights MCing, DJing, B-Boying, and graffiti writing, the original four elements of hip-hop culture, alongside contemporary interdisciplinary work born of hip-hop aesthetics through ticketed and free performances and exhibitions featuring the work of some of the most innovative hip-hop generation artists in the world today. The event explores hip-hop’s dynamic relationship with audiences and artists worldwide who identify themselves and their work as part of a global hip-hop culture."
