About Make a Move:
Make a Move is a hip hop festival that has been running in Limerick City since 2012. The festival emerged out of a community arts workshop and has been developed by a team of local volunteers and community development organisations. Make a Move seeks to capture the revolutionary spirit and underground traditions of hip hop culture and engage young people through hip hop music, dance and urban art. The festival puts young Limerick artists across a variety of disciplines to the forefront and celebrates the diverse cultures and ethnic backgrounds from the city and beyond.
