UNESCO raises the profile of Caribbean hip-hop artists internationally

The Transcultura programme*: Integrating Cuba, the Caribbean and the European Union through Culture and Creativity has partnered with the Goethe Institute and the Centre for Inter-American Studies at Bielefeld University in Berlin to increase the visibility of Caribbean hip-hop artists in the international market.

To this end, the programme has launched a call to sponsor the participation of up to three such musical projects in the international festival and symposium “Reinventing Europe from the Caribbean. Urban Cultures, Translocal Identities and Social Movements in the Black Atlantic”, to be held in Berlin, Germany, from 28 to 31 July 2022.

A jury will select one hip-hop group or solo artist from each of the linguistic areas covered by the programme (English, French and Spanish), who will have the opportunity to perform in Berlin and participate in promotional activities and exchanges with the actors of the music market and the hip-hop scene in Germany.

Through this exhibition, the selected artists will increase their visibility in the European circuit, establish networks of contacts and improve their professional development opportunities.

The call is open to young hip hop artists, aged 18-35, from the 17 beneficiary countries of the programme: Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Cuba, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago.

For more information on the conditions of participation, please consult the UNESCO website.


*The Transcultura programme is an EU-funded initiative which is implemented by UNESCO.
