About this series:
Lovers of street culture, here’s a workshop series made specifically for you! This is your chance to gain a better understanding of street culture in France, and explore its place within broader French culture. The series will cover three distinct but interlinked topics: French Hip Hop, street art and the film de banlieue genre. We’ll explore the birth and influences of the French Hip Hop scene, how street art became such an important part of French cities’ visual landscapes, and discuss some of the best films de banlieue and their social message. Joining us for each workshop will be a guest knowledgeable in the day’s topic.
* This class will take place online via the video conference platform ZOOM *
