Exhibition at Derby Museum

The final exhibition was held at Derby Museum in January 2018 and was curated by Culture Train to showcase the young people’s work.

The day started early for the young people from the project who completed a session Museum 1with Derby Museum curators working with objects from the World Cultures Collection (image right). They learnt about their history, and had a go at conservation, and cleaning the objects. They then came to look at their Reppin Endz Derby: Stories Of Derby Hip Hop exhibited within the Museum.

The exhibition told the stories of Derby hip hop from early influences from Jamaican and American Culture to the role of Derby youth clubs in nurturing early Derby Hip Hop, the explosion of graffiti and dance culture, and the success of Derby hip hop artists including Baby J, Eyez (although a Grime MC Eyez referenced his early hip hop links) and JD.
