TOMORROW TODAY

Background

RAPOLITICS’ work in the Middle East inspired us to focus even more on youth activism in our work in Denmark. With this project we work with youth self-expressions as a strategy for achieving a political voice. Rap has through the times been used as a political instrument, and RAPOLITICS is very much committed to promoting this agenda.

Project Info

Tomorrow Today is a project with activities in Denmark. The young people participating in the project activities will discuss youth activism and how young people can make themselves heard in a positive and creative way. The project consists of a junior rap coach course, 35 workshops at schools and high schools, an intensive Playground-workshop for music students, visits from rappers from the Middle East, a project camp, a grant scheme with 10 grants, and a dialogue meeting with politicians in Copenhagen.
