Artist Workshop: Mohammed Yahya

Based on social justice and the human rights declaration, this workshop explores how Hip-Hop has impacted different communities, justice and the way we think about our collective being.

The workshop will be visually led, exploring the themes that rappers address. It will end with a small exercise to look at a theme. Writers of all abilities and nationalities are welcome. 

Spaces are now fully booked.

As we approach the launch date for Journeys Festival International 2020, it’s an absolute honour to present to you a Spotify music playlist which I curated in collaboration with ArtReach.

For the first time ever, Leicester, Manchester and Portsmouth Festivals have come together to bring you three weeks of digital creativity, online content, educational workshops and world-class cultural experiences, so as part of that experience I put together a multi genre International music playlist showcasing some remarkable International artists with great music and powerful messages.

Since Journeys Festival International is a multi-art-form Refugee & Asylum Seeker Artist Festival, I thought it would be essential to include art by musicians from a refugee & migrant background such as K’naan (Somalia) Lowkey (Iraq), Mayra Andrade (Cape Verde), MazMars (Sudan) & myself Mohammed Yahya (Mozambique).

Anyway, that’s enough talking, put your headphones on and head over to the playlist which is guaranteed to take you on a musical journey from the Niger River in Mali to the blazing desserts in Morocco to the tropical rainforest and soaring mountains in Jamaica.
