The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Live from the Incubator

Free – donations welcome

Curated by Otis Mensah for this years Migration Matters Festival, Live from the Incubator is a virtual exhibition of art that acts as a powerful, social and political tool – uniting people beyond borders through poetic vulnerability.

With a lineup of creative innovators, each artist brings their own soulful touch, melding contemplative writing with trailblazing sounds inspired by R&B, Soul and Hip-Hop. The event will include exclusive live performances from Lucy DK, K.ZIA and Otis Mensah, as well as a live show and conversation with headliner Lando Chill.

Get to know Sheffield poet laureate Otis Mensah in our Meet the Locals Q&A.
