About this Venue
VTDITC: Hip Hop Studies at Virginia Tech, or, more commonly, Virginia Tech Digging in the Crates, is a practitioner-focused, student-driven, culturally responsive community engagement program that prioritizes experiential learning. The multifaceted and ever-evolving program is based in Southwest Virginia on the campus of Virginia Tech (a public, land grant university with a student body of approximately 30,000). VTDITC was co-created by a diverse transdisciplinary team and is now in our seventh consecutive academic year of programming. The program has iteratively developed since the Fall 2016 semester; we have successfully hosted more than 700 events.
