The Art of Disruption: A manifesto for change

June 11 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Join us for a guide to being courageous and community-minded, and to disrupting and dismantling age-old power structures in work, life and politics, presented by someone who has done exactly that.

Magid Magid is a Somali-born black Muslim refugee who became the youngest ever Lord Mayor of Sheffield and one of the last UK MEPs. He has made headlines nationally and internationally for his creative ways of campaigning while not conforming to tradition and being unapologetically himself.

Magid, author of The Art of Disruption, will explain how the poster he dreamed up for a local music festival in 2018 went viral. The poster contained the 10 commandments he tries to live by and came to represent a movement that has swept him to the heart of local and European establishment politics. Discover the stories behind each of these ‘commandments’; what drives him, the obstacles he overcame and what makes him hopeful.
