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

The Art of Disruption – Magid Magid in conversation with Sile Sibanda

Sat. 24 October 2020 at 19:30

Tickets £10 / live stream £5

In his year as Lord Mayor, Magid Magid brought refreshing energy, humour and character to a role steeped in tradition. He went on to become an MEP, and now presents his first book The Art of Disruption.

The book is a guide to hope, doing better, and being courageous, showing how it's possible to think differently about power and life. An inspiring manifesto for real change encapsulating all the great attributes of an energising life philosophy forged by a Somali-born Black Muslim refugee who has done it all himself.

Live from the Octagon.
