The Joint Project was conceived by Amy Sackett in an effort to push Twin Cities hip-hop artists to the next level. The Joint Project is a collision of artists that normally do not work together taking risks and collaborating to create new work, pushing hip-hop in a new and innovative direction. Step outside the box to see the next level of dance performance that Twin Cities hip-hop artists have created! This year The Joint Project is guest curated by Arturo Miles.
