Yesterday (actually only a few hours ago) I was at Urbis for the opening night of a Hip Hop Exhibition called ‘Home Grown’.I met some great people, had some amazing conversations and grabbed some moments in photos, film and audio. It’s gone 2am here in my Manchester hotel room and I have been browsing some of the images and viewing some of the online conversations around the event. I thought it was a great exhibition creating a window to a scene I am visiting only now. I could tell from the expressions and conversations from people revisiting this time that It was a job well done. Flashbacks were had. Memories allowed to flood back and friends reacquainted. I’ll name some of the photos, encode some of the video and no doubt drop the various bits and bobs online in the next few days. If you are anywhere in the UK or have an interest in the history and origins of the UK Hip hop scene, please go visit the Urbis in Manchester before March.. Otherwise.. Watch this space.
