"From China to Thailand to Iowa, An Evening of Hip Hop and More" is a night of hip hop music, art, dance and performance, an outgrowth of community collaboration that led to students from UNI and the Waterloo Community School District performing at cultural festivals in Thailand in January and in China last fall. The UNI community and general public are welcome to attend.
The full line-up of events includes:
- Video of the China trip, including performances by the Waterloo Hip Hop Literacy students at the Hangzhou Citizens Leisure Festival;
- Video of the Thailand trip, part of the Thailand International Folklore Festival, which included the UNI hip hop dance group, The Movement.
- Live performances by both student groups.
- Additional hip hop performances by Des Moines-based Hip Hope, and King Tez and Marcus Jackson, local performers.
- Project presentations by Waterloo students in the Waterloo Writing Project and Youth Art Team
