Young people from the project visited Derby Local Studies Library to search for Derby hip hop history. They worked with library staff to search the archives, catalogue cards and collections for records relating to Derby hip hop events (image left). They then used their research and a collection of Derby hip hop flyers to plot Derby hip hop locations on historical maps from the Library (image right).
They then journeyed around the city with their maps and flyers to visit the hip hop sites – even when the original buildings have been knocked down.
