Hip Hop and Philosophy: a public lecture by Otis Mensah: Thursday 7 November at The Diamond, Lecture Theatre 4
Sheffield’s very own Poet Laureate and Hip Hop artist, Otis Mensah, presents a lecture on the intimate relationship between Hip Hop and Philosophy; arguing that the art form is an important and rich teaching tool that can help us make sense of ourselves and the world around us.
Using his own experiences as an artist and public speaker, Otis explores how race and class inform universities’ lack of engagement with Hip Hop and ultimately creates barriers of access for both the art form itself and the people who closely identify with it. The FREE public lecture will also feature a short performance.
Disney on Ice: 6 – 10 November at Sheffield’s Dly DSA Arena
