Antyx Hip-Hop Club at the Genesis Centre

Antyx Hip Hop Club Crowd

Since 2017, the Genesis Centre has been a hub for Antyx Hip-Hop Club bringing new opportunities for collaboration and idea sharing within the hip-hop community. This year we have expanded what’s being offered within the program to include open-mic emceeing and open-deck deejaying in addition to open-floor dancing! This has brought exciting new partnerships and collaborations to the community, simultaneously enhancing the mission and vision of Antyx Hip-Hop Club. 

This program is designed to give youth participants the chance to embrace leadership roles and make their voices heard to positively impact their self-esteem. Often, we see our youth grow professionally throughout the program and become partners once they have aged out of the program. One of our current youth, Dredyn Vasquez, has inspired the resurgence of one of our biggest hip-hop events, organizing the sixth edition of Culture Shock – a free public event in collaboration with the Genesis Centre to celebrate Alberta Culture Days.

Competing in 2019, Dredyn took the initiative to instead become the head event planner with guidance from our facilitator Bryan Francisco during Hip-Hop Club sessions. The September event featured all-styles battles and breaking competitions, successfully bringing the community together and revitalizing a piece of Antyx history.

If you are interested in collaborating with Antyx Hip-Hop Club or know of youth between the ages of 12-18 who would like to join the program, email Simone at simone@antyx.org. This free program runs every Friday night from 4:00-7:00 p.m. in the upper mezzanine at the Genesis Centre.
