Hip Hop Appreciation week 2012 – renewal

Peace, Unity, Love and Respect Hiphoppas!


On behalf of Hip Hop Kulture worldwide, the International Hip Hop Council (IHHC) is pleased to announce the 15th Annual Hip Hop Appreciation Week 2012 (HHAW), will be celebrated May 13-19, 2012! After much conversation, input and consideration; we decided our theme for this year is RENEWAL!  In accordance with principle #9 of the Hip Hop Declaration Of Peace; Hiphoppas are encouraged to honor their ancestors, reflect upon their cultural contributions and appreciate the elements and principles of Hip Hop Kulture. A primary goal of Hip Hop Appreciation Week (HHAW) is to de-criminalize the public image of Hip Hop Kulture; by honoring our images, messages and common spirit!


HHAW is the perfect time for a RENEWAL of the consciousness that allowed Hip Hop to become the worldwide cultural force beyond the mainstream entertainment industry! Since the 1970’s there have been attempts by many declaring Hip Hop dead or soon to be! Hiphoppas are facing many challenges; the RENEWAL of Hip Hop Kulture will allow Hiphoppas to be empowered to take control of our culture, respect each other, organize ourselves and our resources as we work together through the issues we are facing locally, nationally and globally!


During Hip Hop Appreciation Week 2012 (HHAW),Hiphoppas are encouraged to restore, revive and recondition the good works we are doing through the elements Hip Hop Kulture (Breakin, Emceein, Graffiti Art, Deejayin, Beatboxin, Street Knowledge, Street Fashion, Street Language and Street Entrepreneurialism), as life-strategies for self–identification, self-improvement and self-empowerment, which ultimately leads to positive social change in our lives and communities!


In ancient wisdom it is written that you can, “…be transformed by the RENEWING of YOUR mind”. During HHAW there are many ways that Hiphoppas can demonstrate their RENEWAL to Hip Hop Kulture; attached are a few suggestions.  If you have questions, comments, concerns or require assistance launching a Hip Hop Appreciation Week event in your area; an IHHC authorized Hip Hop Kultural Advocate may be consulted; contact us at info@hiphoplives.net or hiphopminstries@yahoo.com.


IHHC (9) Nine Renewable Suggestions for HHAW 2012:


  1. Review, study, teach and/or practice the pioneering wisdom that laid down the foundation to establish Hip Hop Kulture.
  2. Remind people of what Hip Hop Kulture has accomplished in less than 40 years; share our BEST music, videos; documentaries; influences, books, etc
  3. Renew the LOVE and RESPECT that Hiphoppas had for each other BEFORE we got involved with the entertainment industry.
  4. Recommit yourself to what Hip Hop Kulture means to you; decide how YOU can contribute to its development, growth and preservation.
  5. Reproduce and conduct workshops, lectures and creative presentations that teach the youth about the origins, elements and history of Hip Hop Kulture.
  6. Remember to tell people about artists, individuals and organizations that are actively doing good works in Hip Hop communities around the world.
  7. Reserve some time to volunteer with non-profit organizations; schools, community centers; share your gifts, talents and experiences.
  8. Restore the diversity of Hip Hop Kulture with HHAW events; include artists, parents, youth, educators, spiritual leaders, politicians and community stakeholders.
  9. Reestablish May 16th 2001, as our “Hip Hop Independence Day”; the day that the Hip Hop Declaration of Peace was presented to the United Nations to establish Hip Hop as an “international culture of peace and prosperity”.
