Want to learn how to rap, do video / photography work or sound-engineering?
I have taught ca 20.000 people these skills in over 1300 workshops in different countries around the world, being it in prisons, schools, day care centers, summer camps, theaters, culture and youth centers, music studios, refugee centers or memorial sites. I have worked for institutions like Goethe Institut, Schule ohne Rassismus – Schule mit Courage, cultures interactive e.V., Archiv der Jugendkulturen e.V., HipHop Mobil / WeTeK Berlin gGmbH, HochDrei e.V., Solon gGmbH, Drop In e.V,, kulturvoll e.V., Interkunst e.V., SixStep GmbH, Bundeszentrale für gesundheitliche Aufklärung, Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung, Kiezsprossen & Deutsches Theater.
Political education, empowerment and sharing important values like empathy, patience and openness are important to me.
It is possible to combine the different elements:
For example let me compose some original music (also to avoid trouble with copyrights), then write a song to it together in a rap workshop, record, mix and master the track and even shoot and edit a music video for it. There can always be a finished product (song, video) in the end.
I share some of my expertise in two articles I wrote for the inspiring book “It’s more than just rap – HipHop in der Jugendarbeit” (Beltz Juventa).
Much love and respect to everybody involved!
