Located in a transformed former
candy factory under the Bruckner 
Expressway, the Rebel Diaz Arts Collective has spent the past few years moving minds and bodies with art and rhymes about the struggles faced by the area’s residents. This weekend, they embark 
on their most ambitious project yet: South by South Bronx, their answer to Austin’s South by Southwest music and film festival. Tonight, they host free workshops on everything from the 
history of DJing (hosted by scratch-inventor Grandmaster Caz) to surviving the police state. Tomorrow afternoon, they follow up with a concert featuring Sadat X, Mysonne, and YC the Cynic, 
and a panel discussion with two hip-hop pioneers from the borough: Afrika 
Bambaataa and DJ Kool Herc.
