The HollaDeck: An Interactive Hip Hop Classroom


This session requires RSVP, and access will only be available to badge types listed under “Primary Access.”

From internet memes to Hamilton on Broadway, we’re witnessing a convergence in the worlds of hip hop culture and academics. The HollaDeck is an interactive experience where participants engage academic content via original hip hop music, videos and cutting-edge technology. After two successful runs at SXSWEdu, we’re excited to bring the HollaDeck to SXSW Interactive, with live performances, role-playing, and widely accessible tech such as mobile phones, AR and VR apps. Plus, learn how to create your own culturally responsive activations with the HollaDeck Kit - and be part of the paradigm shift fusing the worlds of youth culture, rap and education with technology.

Programming descriptions are generated by participants and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of SXSW.
