Meduulla Image ade.archive_small

Meduulla is an emerging Zimbabwean-born artist, poet and rapper, raised in Manchester. Commissioned by IWM to respond to the theme of migration as a consequence of conflict, she is eager to use her voice and her craft to push pertinent conversations to the forefront. “Whose Land?” is an original piece drawing on the history of Zimbabwe, referencing the land reform bill, conflict and mass migration. Using her voice to explore different perspectives, Meduulla’s piece will consider the inner conflict migrants faced once they had left Zimbabwe and the ongoing legacy of this conflict on young people today.

Meduulla's response to IWM’s Refugees season of exhibitions and events will launch on 14 June 2021 on IWM’s website and social media channels as part of Refugee Week (14-20 June 2021).

This project has been supported by Manchester based artist, writer and Producer mandla rae, on placement at IWM through Counterpoints Arts’ Refugee Week Leadership Project.
