Krosswerdz started in Australia in 2006.  The first annual Uprock Christian Hip Hop Summit, was held in Sydney in 2011.  Krosswerdz has since spread to countries including Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Canada and the USA. 

The next Uprock in Australia is happening in November.  Check out the Krosswerdz website to find out what's happening near you.
