The Broadway Neighborhood Hip Hop Academy is a Winnipeg-based drop in program that has operated successfully out of the Broadway Neighborhood Centre – a not-for-profit organization committed to providing the highest quality recreational, social, health, educational and employment training programs and services to individuals of all ages – since 2006.

The program is conducted in a professional recording studio that exposes youth between the ages of nine and 15 to professional music production instruments, equipment and software in a fun, safe and creative environment. The youth engage in lyric writing, music production, live performance development and, on occasion, make music videos to go along with their musical productions.

$25,000 has been awarded to the Broadway Neighborhood Hip Hop Academy through the MusiCounts TD Community Music Grant and this funding will be used to purchase iMacs and keyboards for the recording studio.

Congratulations to the Broadway Neighborhood Hip Hop Academy!
