Hip Hop and Philanthropy: The New Giving!

Monday, October 13, 1:45 pm – 3:15 pm
Cypress, M2/International Ballroom Level

Organized by Sarah Latimer, trustee, Dallas Austin Foundation

The session will be a discussion with three or four successful hip-hop artists and the responsibilities they feel in giving back to their communities. Each will describe his/her individual Foundations and the successes/opportunities they have experienced.

  1. What has your journey to philanthropy been? When did it start?
  2. How did you select the focus of your foundation? Why?
  3. What are the barriers to other artists giving back?
  4. How would you describe generosity in philanthropy in your community? Personal? Professional?
