CAN has really helped me.  From CAN I learned a lot more about producing than I initially knew. Thanks to CAN I’m now a better Artist and Producer and I’ve worked with some of the leading arts companies in the world including Manchester International Festival (MIF).

CAN supported Manchester International Roots Orchestra (MIRO) to get funding from Arts Council England and develop a national tour, with me as both Rapper and Producer. It was an amazing experience and I learned so much about successful project management.

Following that experience, I’ve taken part in a Producer placement at the Old Vic Theatre, London, and connected with MIF as an artist.  It’s great to have that visibility as an Artist and Producer.

I’m really fond of CAN.  The organisation has really invested in me, it’s given me confidence that has helped me progress in my career.

And it was great to come back in Spring and Summer 2021 as a Creative Producer.  I worked on a number of projects including HUNGER with three international artists live-streamed from Manchester Museum, Black Lives Matter: Readings and Conversation, the live-streamed event for International Mother Tongue Day and the Horizons Festival.
