The Dharavi Project and Mumbai University have collectively introduced a Student Exchange programme for a Hip-Hop certification course which will enable students to learn beyond classroom sessions. The 15 week course has especially been curated to ensure that students from both the institutions learn and receive maximum exposure. This one of its kind initiative makes a great opportunity for budding artists of the Hip-Hop community to get both, support and mentorship in a surrounding where music and education will collaborate allowing students to analyse the social and historic roots of Hip-Hop, said a statement.
The idea has been conceptualised by Prof Yatindra Ingle who has been actively involved in building the curriculum in tandem with Dolly Rateshwar, Programme Head of The Dharavi Project.
The duo addressed the audiences and inaugurated the course which will help students explore the origin and roots of hip-hop.
It will also give them the chance to receive exposure beyond the class room walls and learn as a team.
The course was introduced on September 8, 2018 at the Mumbai University.
