Breakin’ Convention & Lyrix Organix bring you Graffical, a two day fun workshop during the June half term.

Working with two rap mentors, you will share and discuss your favourite rap songs and research their lyrical meanings and their changes over time and what affects they have socially and personally.

Inspired by the research, the rap mentors will lead lyric writing workshops for you to write your own bars that would inspire and motivate your families and communities. On the second day, you will be bringing your words to life by working closely with an artist to make big graffiti murals to display in your local area for the WORD 2017 Festival in June.

There are limited spaces for this, so make sure you apply early. You have to attend both days!

How do I apply?

If you're interested in applying for Graffical, please fill out this online form 

Deadline: 22 May 2017 

Location: Platform Islington, Hornsey Road Baths, 2 Tiltman Place (Off Hornsey Road), London N7 7EE
