The city has fundamentally changed our way of life. Urban experience rejects tradition, prompting artists to find and generate different forms, like street art and hip-hop, to capture the contemporary social story. American novelist and graffiti artist Ryan Gattis, Scottish hip-hop star Dave Hook of Stanley Odd and Michael ‘Mikey J’ Asante of award-winning hip-hop dance company Blue Boy Entertainment celebrate these fascinating means of storytelling. Chaired by Theatrum Mundi’s John Bingham-Hall.

Michael ‘Mikey J’ Asante of award-winning hip-hop dance company Blue Boy Entertainment will also appear in this event.
