Ghetto Gospel Movement Youth Violence Prevention Initiative: The Elements of Culture Performance Lecture Series


The Elements of Culture Performance Lecture Series (ECPL) combines the arts and cultural education; examining and exploring the histories and contributions of Traditional African and Indigenous World Cultures in both the so-called pre-colonial and post-modern context. A key theme throughout the the series is the evolution of instruments – taking participants back to ancient Africa; examining the roots of both musical and cultural forces that now live on in the form of Hip-Hop Culture today. The goal is to provide the participants with a powerful and positive delivery of performative storytelling, socio-political perspective, and a value-based lecture, one that is True to the Hip-Hop, Afrikan and Indigenous to Cultures. 

The Lecture Performance was developed in the 1960s as a sub-genre of Performance Art. American sculptor, conceptual artist and writer Robert Morris, was one of the most prominent Minimalism Theorist who helped to contribute to the development of Performance Art, Land Art, the Process Art Movement, and Installation Art. 

The Elements of Culture Performance Lecture Series is a platform for those who understand the relationship between art and knowledge, art and research, art and socio-political justice, and do so via a Hip-Hop Cultural lense. This Series will operate as a space in potential, one in which art, life and society is deconstructed, recontructed as well as created via an intimate, honest and open conversation between the artist and the audience
