Poetry and Talk

This is artist and textile designer Kay Davis, one of the people I met yesterday at Masol's event. What style!
It was a really enjoyable day, representing young artists, writers and musicians who want to forge a community identity for themselves in the face of the powerful and entrenched urban and political organisations and groupings whose tide they are swimming against. My fellow panel-member, Therryi Jay Brown, is a youth mentor and community business activist who has her own radio show.
When Masol runs her next event in August I'll let you know.
Masol is intent on encouraging young women to be confident through creativity and she has my support 100% in that. She is also an amazing producer and DJ and works with her Mama sometimes on musical and poetry projects that reflect African culture.
