EVENT \\ Life Check 2011

Life Check is a Durban based non-profit Hip Hop events organisation. Using the resources provided by various funding groups and the continued support provided by Redbull SA Culture department, a platform has been created for Durban youth to express themselves through Hip Hop culture and related performance styles.

Originally Life Check was a gathering of youth from the Durban metro every first Saturday of the month at The BAT Centre, located in the city Yacht Basin. This event would run for approximately 5 hour as people expressed themselves through rapping, dancing, poetry and music in a safe and controlled environment. Today the organisation has moved the event away from one dedicated venue and given it more flexibility to control ’satellite’ events. These ’satellite’ events are located wherever an existing scene is in evidence. “Life Check attempts to provide a boost in the form of a daytime free Hip Hop Open Mic concert featuring guest artists from outside of the location, as well as heads from within the scene itself.”
