Melbourne's Dig Deep Hip Hop Concert, Album Launch Moved to 11/8
Arts Centre Melbourne's hip-hop music collective Dig Deep will launch their debut full-length concept album Relationship Material live on a massive pop-up stage on Arts Centre Melbourne's Forecourt from 6pm Friday 8 November. Displaying lyrical dexterity and head-nodding beat production, the album Relationship Material tells personal stories of the artists, many of whom are of refugee backgrounds, and explores the connections between people, music and the world around them.
Arts Centre Melbourne's flagship hip-hop and urban music mentoring program Dig Deep supports the development of young people aged 14 to 22. Held every Tuesday evening in Arts Centre Melbourne's Digital Learning Hub, Dig Deep offers a diverse range of young artists the opportunity to work with a team of established hip-hop practitioners, including Hailey Cramer from Blue King Brown and MC Momo from Diafrix, to create and present new work, develop peer mentorship skills and collaborate with other young artists from other creative disciplines.
Arts Centre Melbourne's Dig Deep collective is designed to engage young people from across Victoria and has a number of partner organisations state-wide to help achieve this, including Barkly Arts Centre and Western Region Health Centre, who regularly refer burgeoning musicians for the program.
