The Urban Games is a three year project creating an annual games event for young people from across the Tyne and Wear region. The games will offer a wide range of urban arts and sports inspired by Hip Hop culture as well as some extreme sports.
You can expect:
DJ-ing and Turntablism
MC-ing and Rapping
Young people are working with cultural partners to develop and plan the workshops and the event in each year.
The Urban Games event will be a mixture of workshops and competitions for young people to attend, celebrating the culture, creative and sporting activities within the urban arenas.
The young people involved in running the Urban Games come from a variety of backgrounds but are united through their love of the urban sports and the growing Hip Hop culture.
What have the Urban Games been up to?
The Urban Games team have been really busy planning the first annual event and rehearsing for their performance.
What next for the Urban Games?
With one successful event under their belt it is time to evaluate and start planning for next year!
