STAY SHARP – TEDx TALKS / PLAN B / AKALA
Big fan of Ted Talks, if you don’t know, get to know, mad informative and led by some interesting individuals.
Tedx, which is an independently organised event, similar to an actual TED Talk, anyone can run them subject to certain rules and regulations. Came across conscious music artists Plan B and Akala, (big fan of both) who both gave a talk. Plan B touches on his music, life and issues growing up in London, and Akala explores the connection between Shakespeare and Hip-Hop, and the wider cultural debate around language and it’s power.
I fully rate both artists and what they represent, and feel these kinda talks from young-ish, conscious, creative individuals need to be given more in schools so the youths can relate and explore fresh ways of thinking and expressing themselves through positive channels…
Deep, engaging and oh so relevant!
