Look out for live performances from hip hop artist Andy Mkosi (@AndyMkosi) and backpack emcee Sabz (@SabzaMK), an interaction with a live street art wall by Clara Ilena as well as merchandise from pop up stalls.
The hustle seeks to answer questions about:
- who determines what makes up street culture?
- how street culture and the wider creative sector work alongside each other, or, is it all the same?
- is there a way to merge top end creative movements with pop up kasi street culture?
- whether street culture lends itself more to collaborations with new or established brands?
- how technology has facilitated greater access to global street culture?
