Pride in Self,
Pride in Community,
Pride in Culture.
The Stylin’ UP Regional program is a community and cultural development program linked into the annual Stylin’ UP Festival – Australia’s largest Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Hip Hop and RnB event. Both the Program and Festival are inspired by the vision of Pride in Self, Pride in Community, Pride in Culture.
Stylin’ UP Regional currently works with approximately 800 young people, community members and Elders across four communities.
Workshop programs in dance, songwriting, music-making, MCing and visual arts are conducted in each community throughout the year.
We work with young people through workshops, not only to create a performance piece for the Stylin’ UP Festival, but to develop new skills, encourage local talent, document local stories, foster participation in community events, and to identify education and career pathways.
Stylin’ UP Regional is coordinated by Human (formerly SpeakOut), in partnership with each community; community members, Elders and Community Crews in Cherbourg, Woorabinda, Hope Vale and Logan, with support from Inala Stylin’ UP Community Crew and Brisbane City Council.
