HIP HOP HAMBURG e.V.



On the 1st of June '89 I started offering an open programme for children and youngsters for the TREFF association in a loghouse close to the underground station Uhlandstrasse. The location of this house was ideal for this project since the nearby playground could be incorporated and the number of rooms allowed holding meetings in small groups with their individual activities as well as bigger meetings. Still, it was but a provisional solution since the building was standing on city park-ground without permit.
The Graffiti Project was put into reality by a youngster from Hohenfelde, who was looking for a legal wall to write on for himself and his friends. Later the commutertrain surfers joined the group. The location of the loghouse and the enormous mobility of the sprayers were the reasons why the project grew quickly from regional to interregional and finally international level.
