Great news from our friends in DIEPKLOOF, SOUTH AFRICA!
Since 2003 to date; the Slaghuis movement a Soweto based Company has successfully paved ways for a number of artists in the Hip Hop music industry such as Pitch Black Afro, Pro kid, Maggz, Molly, F eezy, Siyashezi and 985. Some of the mainstream Artists who have stepped on the revolutionary stage to bless the Slaghuis masses include; Teargas, Slikour, Kuli Chana, Reason, Flabba, Zeus, Proverb, Kwesta & Deep Level just to name a few.
In Celebrating our 10th Year Anniversary – Slaghuis will celebrate with a Street Festival & Fundraiser that will combine all the unique elements of the urban cultural phenomenon; Hip Hop into one space for people to come through and enjoy as a community. The event comprises of a wide range of activities such as a Human Rights Tattoo, Graffiti Expo, Dance Competitions, Rap Battles, Extreme Sports, Exhibition Stalls and live performances. Artist’s line up for the day includes Kwesta, F Eezy, Molly, Siyashezi, Kay E, Vandal, Ntsiki Mazwai, Gimboss, Flipside, Deep Soweto, Flo Breeze, Nubian Queen, Empress Divine and Caz the Beat Boxer.
Slaghuis is also proud to host as part of the activities – a Netherlands based project tilted Human Rights Tattoo. This is an art project aimed to tattoo the complete Declaration of Universal Human Rights with the full 6773 characters on 6773 human beings around the world. Why? Universal Human Rights mean that the Human Rights apply to every single living human being. You might think that these 30 rights are commonly known by everybody, but that is far from the truth. It is impossible to respect and protect these rights if they are not known. That’s why! To tattoo the complete text we need 6773 individuals to offer a small piece of their skin. Only the size, place or colour of the tattoo can be determined by the receiver of the tattoo, but not the letter.
Slaghuis works very closely with the Soweto Hospice (Diepkloof) for patients and disadvantaged children both infected and affected by the AIDS pandemic, the Festival is going to serve as a platform for the community to donate funds, clothing, toys and resources to the Hospice. The Fundraiser is also aimed at creating awareness about HIV/AIDS and encouraging young people to get tested.
The objective of the SLAGHUIS Hip Hop Fundraiser is aimed at raising funds for the Soweto Hospice as well as combining all the unique elements of Hip Hop into one space for Sowetans to come through and enjoy as a community.
