We B* Girlz will celebrate their creativity with a one month festival in August 2008 in Berlin. The intention is to provide a platform for women from different cultural backgrounds to make contacts, exchange ideas, and support each other. The creators hope to teach B-girl new skills, strengthen their confidence and show them the accomplishments of women in all aspects of Hip Hop culture.
Within the four weeks, the Festival will provide the tools to be creative in all aspects of Hip Hop culture and will also feature workshops in video editing, photography, and web design as well as exhibitions, concerts, club nights, a film festival and much much more. The event will close with battles, shows and a concert on the last weekend in August.
