Mohammed Ali is a street-artist, born and raised in the city of Birmingham, who has travelled great cities around the globe. He has taken his murals which combine meaningful messages with vibrant colour to the urban metropolis, from New York to Melbourne, from Casablanca to Dubai.

He will present his work and ideas about how he believes bringing an alternative visual landscape to the cities we live in, is the way to deal with social ills and celebrating multi-cultural Britain. Mohammed Ali is an award winning artist whose work has been celebrated as a means of connecting people of different background and faith. Last year he was invited to deliver in the Vatican state, where the first ever TedX event took place. He continues to practice his art in the city of Birmingham as well as educating young people on the power of art to transform our society.
He will also be talking about his work with the Library, access to resources and to Library’s expertise in the development of cultural engagement programmes, projects and activities.
