Program Dates: 28 September 2023 - 28 July 2024

Campbelltown Arts Centre’s Conscious program supports the vibrant hip-hop community of Western Sydney. Facilitated by hip-hop artist and South-West Sydney local L-FRESH The LION and his team at Village Boy Entertainment, Conscious develops socially minded hip-hop artists, connects them with their communities and puts Western Sydney voices and stories centre stage locally and beyond.

Conscious provides professional development and mentorship support, commissions new tracks and music videos, and provides opportunities for artists to perform, talk about their practice, connect with their local community and build valuable industry relationships.

Conscious welcomes a new cohort of Western Sydney artists in the year long program including annelise. Gemma Navarrete, Ruu. and Zion Garcia who will each be supported to produce and release a new single and accompanying video clip.

Our vision is to keep building the Conscious family of artists and creatives with our collaborators in the local region and beyond to share resources, exchange knowledge and support local artists to realise their goals and potential.

Stay tuned on the Conscious Website or stay up to date with each artist’s journey by following Conscious on Facebook and Instagram.
