About this event
Workshop 2 from CUMIN (Contemporary Urban Music for Inclusion Network) will focus on Hip-hop, Healing and Wellness and will take place both online and in-person.
Hip-hop and other forms of contemporary urban music have been claimed to offer a ‘healing power’. The purpose of this workshop is to ask exactly what benefits to healing and wellness can be identified, how these benefits can best be maximised, who is being impacted upon and why there is a need for those people to receive support for their health and well-being.
Presenters will include Elliot Gann (Today’s Future Sound), Rawz (Urban Music Foundation), Beate Peter (Manchester Metropolitan University), Simon Glenister (Noise Solution), Itoco Garcia (HipHop Scholastics), Kiz Bangerh (Hip Hop HEALS) and a keynote from Raphael Travis (Texas State University). The exact schedule will be issued nearer to the date of the workshop.

For in-person attenders, the event will take place at the StreetLife hub at 29-31 Coney Street in the heart of York city. To learn more about York’s StreetLife project, see https://streetlifeyork.uk/.
