Art27scotland poet Ghazi Hussein to perform at Jeremy Corbyn climate discussion

Ghazi Hussein, poet and Art27scotland Artist in Residence, is to perform his poetry at a discussion event featuring ex-Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn. The event is organised by Corbyn’s Peace and Justice Project and hosted by Art27scotland. It is at the Southside Community Centre, Edinburgh on Tuesday 9 November 2021.

Ghazi is a poet and a teacher who has taught Arabic poetry and calligraphy for many years. He studied philosophy and Arabic grammar and went on to teach a range of different age groups and abilities in schools and universities.

Ghazi’s poetry became a way for him to survive imprisonment. He is now teaching his poetry skills to the Edinburgh Southside community in his current Art27scotland project “Poetry for Survival”.
