What does a Hip Hop community look like? According to the Universal Zulu Nation, a hip hop community is based on the sharing of ideas and resources, while providing service to the broader community through outreach programs. The aim of the organization is to promote peace, equality and humanitarianism through the four elements of hip hop: aerosol art (graffiti), MCing, turntablism, and bboying. At a public forum at the Roundhouse on June 14th, Vancouver Hip Hop artists came together to discuss the formation of a local chapter of the Universal Zulu Nation.

“When we think about why a Zulu nation chapter is needed, the first thing that comes to mind is to create a sense of unity in our community. We hope to bring people together with art, music, dance, and passions for empowering our youth, and building bridges between the many associations. We also feel the need to provide more free, all ages events that promote peace, love, unity and having fun… the principle foundations of Hip-Hop culture, and the international Zulu nation,” says Kia Kadiri and Mattias Boon, facilitators for the Hip Hop Youth Drop-In and active Vancouver hip hop artists.
