Uprock 2011 – Australia’s First Christian Hip-Hop Summit

This past weekend MC’s, Graffiti Artists, B-Boys, DJ’s and church leaders from all over Australia gathered in Sydney for Krosswerdz first ever Christian Hip-Hop Summit. American artists Urban D. and Braille were a part of the weekend doing workshops, speaking and performing. World Champion Break Dancer B-Boy Dyzee from Korea was also teaching workshops and world champion Graffiti Crew TMD from New Zealand were there doing workshops and leading the charge in painting a 100 foot wall on the side of the community center where the host church “The Embassy” meets. The Krosswerdz/Embassy team have been building with Urban D./Crossover Church over the past several years as they launched their ministry. They sent a team over to Flavor Fest 2010 and their dream of doing a conference on their side of the planet was pushed into high gear. The weekend was a great success.
