4ELEMENTS MUSIC PROJECT (4EMP)
TAKE THE JOURNEY THAT IS HIPHOP
WHAT WE DO
We believe in the power of HipHop, with it’s ability to engage young people and assist in breaking down their barriers. We advertently use the 4 main elements of HipHop culture: emceeing (music), b-boying (dance), graffiti (art) and DJing--to help young people find their voice, tell their stories, and belong in their community.
HOW WE DO IT
At 4Elements Music Project (4EMP), we talk about our secret 5th element: knowledge. We pass knowledge from professionals to learners, from learners to professionals, and create local intergenerational spaces for this learning to occur. These spaces a delivered into a series of workshop and mentoring programs and an all age community HipHop festival.

By spreading the good word of HipHop to the wider community and engaging those who wouldn’t normally appreciate it, we allow young people to develop a sense of who they are, and their value to the community is shared and expressed.
HipHop is the largest sub-youth culture in the world, by learning to understand HipHop you are taking the time to learn and understand them. 4EMP is not just about HipHop. It’s about bringing people together, self-expression, identity and respect.
