Retrace the history of Québec’s hip-hop culture, understand its many dimensions and discover its role in our society.

Hip-hop first made an appearance in Québec at the end of the ’70s. Considered as a marginal culture for a long time, it now has an important role in Québec’s society.

The hip-hop culture was, and still is, considered a symbol of a rich and diverse culture. It helps to raise awareness about social issues and inspires important cultural changes. The emergence of hip-hop culture is a testimony of the struggles and hardships endured for all of Québec’s voices to be heard, but also of the journey that remains.

An exhibition developed in collaboration with the hip-hop artist and speaker Webster.
