Hiphop Project Nippes

In summer 2001, a HipHop network for tolerance and integration was founded in Nippes, a big district in the north-western part of the city of Cologne. Since then, every year there's a project phase running from the end of autumn holidays until the end of January. All schools and youth centers involved are offering various workshops: Rap, singing, music production, DJ-ing, b-boys/b-girls, urban dance, graffiti and more. All comes together each year for a big final jam at Auguststrasse School at the end of January.

Current partners in the network include:
- OT Luckys Haus / SKM Köln
- OT Werkstattstraße
- OT Boltensternstraße
- OT Take Five
- OT Escher Club
- Nordparkschule
- Schule Auguststraße
- Zurück in die Zukunft e.V.
- DachloW - Jugendprojekt Weidenpesch
- jfc Medienzentrum
- Bezirksjugendpflege Nippes
