Supported by the DMB Quartet, DStix Barnett, Emre Daniels, Rozuw and Delroy Murray (MD).
Anti-imperialist activist, Awqa Yayra Colque, meets Farah Ahmed (Colour Green podcast), Lamin Joof (Music In Detention), Charlie Weinburg (Safe Ground) and Claudia Turbet-Delof (Wiphalas Across the World) as they explore, through the lenses of Culture, Climate and Human Rights, what society will be when it is free from imperialism's unrestrained, destructive exploitation of the world's human and natural resources.
A lightning Performance Poetry masterclass exploring practices around the performance of poetry and the spoken word, led by Jason Smith and Charlie Weinberg from Safe Ground
Boy Nash chairs presentations and Q&As with employers and sector experts from AEI Group, We Are The Fair, Education & Bass, Clod Ensemble's Ear Opener, Music Declares Emergency, Emanate Music Co-op, Full Time Hobby Records, and Clock Your Skills to give real-time insights on what it takes to get in, stay in and progress your career in music.
Young filmmakers from Mouth That Roars premiere Song of Freedom, their second music video created for the Music in Detention, Voices to The World short film challenge.
Song of Freedom was written and recorded in one of the UK's immigration detention centres. Following its GUAVA: Unbound showcase, it will be shown by Music in Detention at Human Rights festivals and events, helping to amplify hidden detainee voices and raise awareness about immigration detention.
