Friday 24th June 2022, 11:00am - 4:00pm 29-31 Coney Street
CUMIN logo


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.


A new AHRC-funded network, CUMIN (Contemporary Urban Musics for Inclusion Network), brings together researchers and a range of organisations (Ruff Sqwad Arts Foundation, DJ School UK, Noise Solution, In Place of War and many more), to redress the marginalisation of contemporary urban musics and to explore the potential for projects using the such musics to have a significant impact on wellness and educational/social inclusion.
