4ESYDNEY CONFERENCE 2023
Acknowledging the past, living in the present and paving the way for the future
The 4Elements HipHop Conference (4ESydney) is set to take place on November 23 and 24 at The Leo Kelly Blacktown Arts Centre, offering a dynamic platform for insightful discussions, workshops, and networking opportunities. Industry insiders, thought leaders, and creative visionaries will converge to share their expertise and visions for the future of HipHop culture.
This year, the 4ESydney Conference celebrates HipHop’s storied legacy and the genre's contemporary vitality. The event will provide a deep dive into HipHop's significant influence across societal domains. Simultaneously, we will blend reflection and vision, addressing pivotal discussions from understanding ego's influence on artistic and industry growth, to the consequences of erasing history, and the evolutionary trajectory of HipHop.
Program announcements starting in September.

ABOUT THIS YEARS EVENT
4Elements HipHop Festival & Conference (4ESydney) is the only festival and project of its kind specialising in the culture of HipHop and multi artform interdisciplinary practice. It acts as a meeting ground and a space where community, industry and education meet, to create unique opportunities for the growth and preservation of HipHop culture, professional development and industry sustainability.
For the community by the community, now in its 9th year, 4ESydney continues to build a global infrastructure and platform for HipHop in so-called Australia.
2023 marks 50 years since HipHop was founded and this year’s festival and conference will pay respect and acknowledge five generations of artists and industry representatives from across the nation who have paved the way for the thriving culture and community we now see today.
Together, we will explore the influence and opportunities HipHop has provided for young people, activism, social justice, mental health and simply, how we live.
Paying homage to the Past, living in the Present and paving the way for the Future.
