In 2018 the first ever ‘AUS/NY Hip-Hop Exchange’ will occur.
‘The Australian / New York Hip-Hop Exchange’ will send an American artist (Brooklyn, NYC – Truthcity) to tour the east coast of Australia, performing live shows and taking part in networking sessions intended to educate local artists on foreign methods of production, publicity etc. Upon the conclusion of this tour, 2 Australian artists will fly to NYC and engage in a tour of the city, surrounding states, and involve themselves in similar networking sessions.
We don’t need to tell you, this is huge.
