The HHC Online Social Network
The early success of HHC was built on the personal dedication of its diverse constituency: People of all backgrounds who shared a belief in the power of Hip Hop culture to uplift communities. The challenge was coordinating the grassroots movements emerging virally across the globe at a time of massive social upheaval and technological growth from 2001-2010.
As the original HHC stakeholders matured in age and influence, a new infrastructure was needed to further connect young individuals and allow them to develop into the thought-leaders of today. Many were empowered to find personal success on their own in the absence of a National HHC Strategic Business Plan.
2018-2020 marks a new era for HHC to provide a technological platform and support structure to become a globally unifying force in communities across the planet, thanks to the visionary feedback of many who defined the HHC experience at its inception.
Expanding on the success of its original mission, which allowed individuals to organize themselves as autonomous chapter collectives, HHC announces the development of an online social network that will provide members with its best support resources for artists, educators, activists, and youth.
This campaign will also produce the comprehensive web-code for a state-of-the-art communications system through Sitebase, LLC that will allow HHC chapter collectives to connect with teaching artists, performers, and affiliate organizations for many years to come...
...as soon as the national funding goal is reached, we need 4-6 weeks to complete the Products Requirement Document (PRD) that we will use to build the site. We hope to have our beta-site up and ready-to-use in 2018!
Thank you for your participation!
We will release the next 25 songs from HHC Artists for donors of $50 or more once we hit $5000! That's less than 10 Lifetime donations away!
Need an end of year donation? We are building the FIRST Hip Hop Social Network for artists, educators and organizers around the world where you will be able to communicate, coordinate and locate each other by city/region. We have already begun the development process and are hoping to have it up and running as soon as possible with your support!
Check the page and support what you can, even if it's by sharing it to your networks!
Thank you all for making this happen!
Any contribution lets me know who to inform about the progress being made everyday around the world when it comes to leveraging urban arts in the name of activism, education and community-building. I learn new things everyday from like-minded folks that give me great hope for the future. The purpose of this campaign is to give us all the means to empower each other in determining the kind of society we wish to grow within.
I want to thank the 30+ artists, organizers and educators from across the world who have already invested in the HHC Lifetime Online Network. On the strength of this network alone, I am incredibly inspired by your membership and looking forward to growing this network organically and working closely together towards our collective goals.
