Urban Tales 2003



“What is Hip Hop? Well, it’s definitely not rap or R ‘n’ B. Rap is something you do. Hip Hop is something you LIVE – a culture. It has its own language, style of dress and attitude. It was born in the mid-seventies in the South Bronx, New York City – in the Afro-American and Latino communities. They swapped their gang wars for ghetto blasters, backspins, scratching and rapping. Poverty and racism was high and the people needed a form of expression, something they ‘owned’... to remain human.” TALMUD BAH, SECOND WAVE ASSOCIATE ARTIST

Urban Tales, Second Wave's 2003 Summer Programme, built on the success of the previous year’s Harmony in Harlem project at Goldsmiths College. The partnership between Second Wave and Goldsmiths in this year was facilitated by ‘Arts Aimhigher’: An Arts Learning Partnership initiative with the aim of building a strong collaboration between a community-based arts organisation (Second Wave) with a local Higher Education partner (Goldsmiths College) in order to create access, widen participation and promote progression between these distinct sectors of creative educational provision.

Particular themes in this year’s programme of summer activities included: work on themes of direct relevance to young men; building peer-leadership and peer-learning skills; and exploring non-traditional routes into continuing education and lifelong learning.

“Goldsmiths is delighted that Second Wave is performing here this summer. We are keen to support creative and innovative productions such as ‘Urban Tales’, particularly when the performers are young people from our local area.”
ANNETTE HAYTON, WIDENING PARTICIPATION CO-ORDINATOR, GOLDSMITHS COLLEGE
