Book Chapters alert: My creative enterprise work that uses Liberation Psychology, 24.12.15

Towards emotional well-being through Liberation Practices: A dialogical approach Edited by Gillian Hughes & Taiwo Afuape Routledge: London

I have written two chapters for this volume; ‘“Keeping it Real”: Liberation as the link between creativity and resistance’ and ‘Holdin’ On: using music technology as a tool of cultural liberation with respect to performing masculinities at a young offenders’ institution’.

Both of these chapters explore my work with the HMPYOI Werrington Music Technology project, part of the award winning Sonic [db] Music Technology in Prisons project, where I used Mcing and urban culture to examine attitudes towards crime. These chapters plot my creative application of Liberation Psychology and feature the “voices” and views of some of the young men with whom I worked.

This chapter is very much related to my book Urban Dialectics, The Market and Youth Engagement: The ‘Black’ Face of Eurocentrism and is also related to my critical race and music performance, Keeping it Real? that was part of the AHRC Being Human Festival 2015.
