Ladies of Hip Hop Festival (LOHHF) provides girls and women with space to express, learn and share their voice through Hip-Hop arts. Traditionally, men have dominated all facets of the Hip Hop scene, but Ladies of Hip Hop Festival changes this tradition and puts girls and women centre-stage. LOHHF offers workshops, performance opportunities, international artist exchanges and public talks to train, educate, and create the next generation of women in the Hip Hop culture. Teaching and sharing the culture through the female perspective is essential to the growth of Hip-Hop culture.
