CUMIN (Contemporary Urban Musics for Inclusion Network) is an AHRC-funded Network organising a series of Workshops in 2022 and a major conference in 2023. Workshop 2 from this series takes place in conjunction with University of York on Friday 24th June at York’s StreetLife hub (29-31 Coney St., York).

Hip-hop and other forms of contemporary urban music have been claimed to offer a ‘healing power’. The purpose of this workshop is to ask exactly what benefits to health and well-being can be identified, how these benefits can best be maximised, who is being impacted upon and why there is a need for those people to receive support for their health and well-being.

Presenters include:

  • Raphael Travis ( Texas State University, author of The Healing Power of Hip Hop, 2015),
  • Simon Glenister (Noise Solution, which offers delivers one-to-one music mentoring programs with people facing challenging circumstances);
  • Naomi Norton (specialist on health and wellness among music-makers);
  • Beate Peter (The Lapsed Clubber Project, which works with former or older clubbers to document rave music as national heritage);
  • Elliot Gann (Executive Director of Today’s Future Sound, specialist in ‘Therapeutic Beat Making’);
  • Rory ‘Rawz’ Campbell (rapper and Ark-T project coordinator who uses hip-hop to tackle issues of self-discovery, self-knowledge and a sense of freedom in educational contexts);
  • Kiz Bangerh (founder of Hip Hop HEALS)
