We Are All Here Premiere
It’s a big week for the We Are All Here team. Their film premieres this Sunday 10 February with a special accompanied Q& A.
In 2017, Glasgow rapper Calum 'Lumo' Barnes tragically took his life at the age of 21. He left an unforgettable legacy in Scottish hip hop and a gaping hole within its community. The film directed by Hannah Currie pieces together Lumo's complex story from his own lyrics and video diaries, the film also features intimate interviews with his close friends and family and aims to open up the conversation about the young male mental health crisis.
A special Mental Health Music Symposium featuring Loki in conversation with Muslim Alim, with Psychologist Simon Stuart and DJ Steg G will also take place.
This one off Mental Health Music Symposium aims to explore mental health themes through the medium of hip hop - dissecting bars to discuss addiction, depression, psychosis and more. Tracks selected and discussed by Scottish rapper Loki (AKA Darren McGarvey // Winner - Orwell Prize) and BBC Producer Muslim Alim, with expert input from NHS clinical psychologist Simon Stuart plus tracks played live on the decks by DJ Steg G (Sunny Govan; Butter). Think Desert Island Discs with a Hip Hop / Mental Health spin.
Furthermore, there will be special guest performances from rappers and We Are All Here film contributors MVCC and Subkonsious, plus Solareye (Winner - Best Hip Hop Act - Scottish Alternative Music Awards 2018) and award-winning poet Leyla Josephine.
There are limited tickets remaining available HERE
All proceeds go to Mental Health Foundation.
MVCC also releases ‘We Are All Here’, the title track from the film 8 February. Accompanied by a Tim Currie-directed video, this is not only a tribute to Lumo, but also a message of hope.
