SEMINAR: 2018 Dates: 08 – 09 Mar 2018
Our overarching theme for the conference is ‘Each One Teach One’ (EOTO).
The concept behind the saying ‘each one teach one’ is an “African proverb that originated in America during slavery times. Slaves were denied an education so when one slave learned to read or write, it became his duty to teach someone else”. EOTO is all about the power & exchange of knowledge, of culture, of history and sharing experiences which have impacted our lives in order to move forward as one.
It doesn’t matter who you are, how old you are or where you are from, we all hold knowledge and experiences which allow us to be both teacher and student.
EOTO opens the floor, the conference is structured to be interactive, it is all about open, uncensored dialogue from those young and old. 4EMP is a brave space to have tough conversations in a safe and respectful environment.
Conversations are from the perspective of the HipHop and creative arts industry.
Across the two seminar days 4EMP will explore issues and topics around:
• Mental health and well-being
• Race and culture
• Gender and sexuality
#4ESydney utilises HipHop and music culture to generate community harmony, engagement and skills development.
We empower youth, artists and diverse communities by:
– breaking through stereotypes,
– building positive identity & self-esteem,
– creating a platform & audience for real voices to be heard, and;
– establishing innovative pathways to education & employment.
1pm - 11pm
