The Estria Battle is a national urban art competition that honors and advances creativity in the Hip Hop arts.

The Estria Battle Festival encourages urban artists to communicate social justice issues and empower communities with beauty and positive messaging. The battle is a project of the Estria Foundation, a non-profit organization based in Emeryville, CA.

We believe art can inspire our youth and improve our communities. Our extensive work with youth has shown that they long to be recognized for their ideas, creativity and accomplishments. Art in public provides youth with a way to express their fears, their hopes and their dreams.


Estria Battle will take place Oakland, CA this October 12, 2013.

Participants are given 5 hours to complete a piece based on a 4-5 letter word that is revealed at the beginning of the competition, leaving little time for planning and execution.
