Rap for Reconciliation
hosted by Kutcha Edwards and Dig Deep
National Reconciliation Week is celebrated across Australia each year between 27 May and 3 June. These dates commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey – the anniversaries of the successful amendments to the Australian Constitution resulting from the 1967 Referendum and the High Court Mabo Decision in 1992.
This year for the first time, artists from our own Dig Deep Collective, (Arts Centre Melbourne’s resident hip hop program) and songwriter and proud Mutti Mutti man Kutcha Edwards host an event to contribute to the ongoing Reconciliation conversation through music.
Together they’ll blend their lyrical styles to perform a collaborative track live. Special guest emcee and strong Gunditijmara and Kurnai woman, Miss Hood, will showcase her unique and powerful style performing tracks from her debut 2014 release, It’s Fatal.
Dig Deep are also excited to launch and perform tracks from their new EP, United In Difference (U.I.D) which will be available for a download from Bandcamp for pay what you want on the day.
