It all starts with the reality that Art is not a crime and talent is run through passion and dedication. This is a special and BIG day for global artists and that day is Music Freedom Day. It is counted as a powerful annual global celebration of human right to artistic expression.
Turning Tables Kenya has been partnering with Freemuse, the official initiators of Music Freedom Day to celebrate and campaign for the freedom of expression for creatives through art. The theme for the 2020 event is ART ACROSS BORDERS and will be held on the 6th of March at the Mageuzi Theatre, thanks to PAWA254.
The upcoming event is supported by Freemuse, Intronox Media and Artiv Hub alongside Turning Tables Kenya, PAWA254 and it will run from 6pm to 10pm. This year’s line up includes Noel grass, Maathai, Muthaka Kuiyu, Anthem Republik, Sugu Vudu, Aneiya, Julie Brenda and Njino Wanjiru.
Annually the event is also used to highlight the role and impact of art in our societies. It brings together Artists, individuals, broadcasters, and organizations from 20 countries globally that support persecuted, prosecuted and imprisoned artists. Crazy enough, the only crime that causes the arrest or persecution of this artists is speaking against authorities and insisting on the right to express themselves through their artistic talents.
As a young, upcoming artist or already a pioneer in this industry, create your time and attend this year’s event and be part of the change in the ART fraternity.
