HIP HOP PSYCH at the Festival of Ideas - October 20th @ 7pm
Monday 20 October: 7:00pm - 9:00pm
West Road Concert Hall, 11 West Road, CB3 9DP
Dr. Akeem Sule (Psychiatry) and Dr. Becky Inkster (Neuroscience) demystify mental illness through hip-hop beats and lyrics while Dr. Griff Rollefson (Music) and Big Dada recording artist Juice Aleem discuss the artform’s valorization of non-normative “illness.” Indeed, Juice Aleem implores us to"rock" our identities: "If you know who you are you'll rock your hologram." Includes live performances (music, dance, graffiti)--a "Hip Hop Takeover" of the Faculty of Music. You might also like to see this link to a Guardian article from Saturday 11th October.
