The BronxBerlinConnection:
A Transatlantic Bridge for Young People

The Hip Hop Re:Education Project  and  Gangway e.V., Berlin's largest street-work organization, have developed the BronxBerlinConnnection, a year-round cross-cultural exchange program that uses the mediums of spoken word and music—particularly, rap and hip hop—to explore and express the unique experiences of urban youth around the world, the critical challenges they face and the solutions necessary to enact change in their communities.  Using the same beats, common lyrical themes and different languages on two separate continents this program works to not only produce multi-lingual, cross-cultural poems, songs and albums, but more importantly it seeks to engage today’s youth in a continual process of cultural exchange.  Thus far this partnership has developed 3 full-length records, facilitated 8 international cultural exchange trips and filmed and released dozens of music videos and mini-documentaries.
