UxI: III “Keep Pushin'” envisions Hip-Hop as our thread from Urban to Indigenous. Throughout hxstory, marginalized peoples have always produced culture as a means to uplift and resist. Art invites the oppressed to imagine the world beyond what is and envision what can be. As UxI enters its third year, we continue to seek what pushes us to create in times of socio-political tension. How have movements created by people of color, particularly Hip Hop, strengthened us? How do our artistic practices honor ancestral lineage and become expressions of bodymindspirit ? In a movement where expression is as diverse as those who practice it, how has Hip Hop become a subversive voice for the oppressed? Lastly, how do we use Hip Hop as a way of pushing societal and artistic boundaries?
