Upcoming Classes

Streetrich Hip Hop Society is sad to announce that we no longer will be co-operating the City Parkway Studio aka The Hip Hop House as of July 29, 2018. Our last session will take place on Sunday July 29 from 6pm to 10pm.
Streetrich had to make this hard decision due to lack of funding, an actual operational budget, and the lack of support. As a team of volunteers we combined all our strengths over the last 3 years to try to make this work and build this Hip Hop House but we came short and ran out of energy.
We do want to sincerely thank everybody who did support us and helped us to write a little bit of Canadian Hip Hop History.
As for now Streetrich Hip Hop Society is taking time to re-organize itself, to re-focus
and once we are ready you will hear from us again. All we can share for now about our new plans is that we will continue doing events, workshops and showcases. We are looking to develop an agency that can help Hip Hop artist to get more employment in the forms of shows and workshops.
