3things, an initiative of Oxfam Australia, is back and joining forces with some of Australia’s best rappers, beat boxers, DJs, VJs and graphic artists, to create a hard-hitting hip hop event with a huge social conscience.
It’s the Hip Hop Approach – a 3things event that gets Australian hip hop acts talking about their opinions and solutions to global poverty and injustice. Artists will jam on the 3things they can do to help change the world for the better, demonstrating the 3things philosophy – that we can change the world, 3things at a time. Across two cities, 3things’ Hip Hop Approach will feature over 20 Aussie artists and acts. Both shows will be hosted by Kween G (of the KillaQueenz), and will feature visual jams by VJ Spook (VJ for the likes of Bliss N Eso and Snob Scrilla).
Sydney’s bill features OziBatla, Dialectrix with Joe New and Plutonic Lab, Tuka, The Last Kinection, DJ Gabriel Clouston, plus beatboxers Rivals and LC Beats. Melbourne’s bill includes The Tongue, Thundamentals, Joelistics, DJ Wasabi, plus more local MCs to be announced. On the night, hip hop heads can leave their mark on the live mural or drop 3things they can do to help change the world on the 3things handy cam. By the end of the event, hundreds of ideas on tackling global issues will accumulate – highlighting that our small actions combined can have a significant impact on bringing about a world without poverty. It’s an all-in jam, where anyone can have a say.
Tickets to 3things’ Hip Hop Approach are $5 on the door at Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory, and at St Kilda’s Prince Bandroom. All proceeds will go to Oxfam Australia. 3things’ Hip Hop Approach coincides with the launch of the new look 3things website, 3things.org.au. 3things aims to build a generation of Australians who are aware of and taking action on global issues, by offering simple, personal and practical ways for young Australians to get involved and bring about positive change.
