Queenz of Hip-Hop

Queenz of Hip-Hop (QHH) uses Hip-Hop arts, including breakdance, graffiti, DJing, and emceeing, to empower and inspire the next generation toward social justice. As a collective, QHH brings a wealth of experience and skill, ranging from early childhood education to fashion design to movement therapy. The group offers a variety of unique artistic experiences for its participants.

QHH began as an idea in 2009 to honor Women’s History Month with a Hip-Hop themed event. The Denver chapter of Hip-Hop Congress organized an event called “Queenz of Hip-Hop” as a platform for female emcees, grafiiti writers, DJs, and b-girls in the local community. In the aftermath, it became clear the event itself was simply not enough; Queenz would soon evolve to become a collective of women in the Hip-Hop community organizing workshops, events, and performances throughout the year.
