This is a short piece documenting the 2010 arts exchange program organized by Nomadic Wax (with funding from the DC Commission for the Arts & Humanities) entitled 'Cape Town 2 DC.' The exchange focused on the collaboration and relationship building between the Cape Town and the Washington DC arts activist communities. Delegates from South Africa consisted of Black Noise's Emile YX? and DJ Thee Angelo. From DC, we had Kokayi, DJ RBI (Words, Beats, Life, Inc), and B-Boy Ironman (Urban Artistry).
Produced by Nomadic Wax, co-sponsors of the exchange included: DC Commission for the Arts & Humanities, Urban Artistry, Hillyer Arts Space, Bloombars, Mageefilms, Asho Productions, One Vs. Many, Sankofa, Busboys & Poets, DCRap.com, World Hip Hop Market, Words, Beats, Life, Heal the Hood, Black Noise, VOICES, Fusicology, Sol Productions, Africa Action, DJ RBI, and Kokayi.
The footage was shot by Megan Keefe (Urban Artistry), Yusuf Harden, and Magee McIlvaine (Nomadic Wax/MageeFilms).
