JVN DAY 2018

JVN Day is The JVN Project’s annual Hip-Hop festival, taking place every fall in Madison, WI. The mission of this festival is to inspire innovation by facilitating connections between communities that would not normally interface. Through this festival we hope to operationalize change by providing participants opportunities to engage the tenets of Hip-Hop culture, and understand that creativity is how we best generate solutions. From movie screenings to concerts, award ceremonies, and service initiatives, JVN Day aims to manifest why we truly believe that Hip-Hop- in its raw, pre-commodified form, has the unequivocal capacity to change lives.
