The Human Rights Project live in Dubai
The Human Rights Project is a US based trio consisting of Mark Gonzales, a poet and an educator and hip hop artists Nizar Wattad and Omar Offendum who offer a unique examination of identity, pop culture and growing up in the 'other' United States through lyrical beats and spoken word. They are currently touring within the region and will be in Dubai this week, for two nights only.

This will be their first live perfomance in Dubai. Expect a night of ground-breaking blend of beats and lyrics backed by our very own Dubai based DJ Solo.

An evening dedicated to poetry reading organised by Poeticians, The Human Rights Project will be special guests along with other Dubai based poets including Hind Shoufani, Nigel Holt, Kevin Simpson and others.
