Kick off the weekend with a packed evening of entertainment.

Up first is a Hit The Ode poetry jam brought to you by Juice Aleem’s AFROFLUX and Apples and Snakes. Expect poetry and music performances that explore Afrofuturism.

 

 

A4 Poster - AEROBREAKS VERSIONWe also have performances from local dance crews also featuring Break Mission‘s AeroBreaks Groups, some of which will be going to France with Break Mission, Hippodrome’s Samina Beckford and Reps from Sport Birmingham to gather with schools and team in Lyon for the Euro Pod Festival

 

 

 

 

B-SIDE then proudly presents VisionBombing – a brand new Hip-Hop game show created by MadFlow & DJ Psykhomantus featuring TY Chijioke. Two teams of Hip-Hop artists compete for points by answering questions on music, films and politics or solving puzzles. Think of a Hip-Hop version of Never Mind The Buzzcocks, with a touch more fun and daring!

To round off the night, we’re inviting some of Birmingham’s finest Hip-Hop DJs to keep the music and vibes flowing into the evening.

Our passions define who we are. So Huawei and Dazed asked some of today’s most creative up-and-coming photographers to celebrate the communities that reveal their true selves using the Huawei P10; a dual lens camera phone built on the century-long legacy of Leica, the original street photography pioneers.

From a shortlist of twenty powerful entries, judges from Leica Galleries International and Arts Impact Fund selected just three overall winners. Each received £10,000 for their community, but only one walked away with a Living Gallery of their work: Anthony Shintai Amao, with his impressive celebration of Birmingham’s Break Mission.
