A3C Music Festival Announces Seven Finalists For Second Annual A3C Action Initiative


A3C Conference is the preeminent hip-hop event in the U.S., commonly referred to as, “hip-hop’s family reunion.” The independently produced A3C Conference has grown organically from a regional showcase to an internationally recognized and nationally acclaimed cultural experience.

A3C strives to empower, engage and energize the community that shape and define hip-hop culture. The A3C Festival will continue to provide the best platform for artist discovery, while celebrating hip-hop’s trailblazers, influencers and milestones.

In partnership with Atlanta’s Center for Civic Innovation, the committee is pleased to announce seven finalists for the second annual A3C Action initiative, where organizations across the country submit ideas that use art and music as a vehicle to advance social justice and civic engagement. The groups will compete for a $10,000 dollar grand prize, where finalists pitch their ideas to a panel of judges on October 7, 2016.

The finalists come from different states spanning the country.

  1. Armed Services Arts Partnership – ASAP (Arlington, VA)
  2. Creative Core (Washington, DC)
  3. Girls Make Beats (Miami Lakes, FL)
  4. Notes for Notes (Atlanta, GA)
  5. re:Imagine/ATL (Atlanta, GA)
