I Am... M.I.A.

Part of Grace Jones' Meltdown

Hear from this year’s Meltdown curator, M.I.A., as she talks about her path into the music industry, activism and life in general.

I Am... is Southbank Centre’s monthly series giving talented young people access to leading artists, career stories and skills workshops.

As part of Meltdown 2017, Southbank Centre’s Youth Ambassadors are hosting a very special version with this year’s curator, M.I.A.

Come along to be inspired and if you have a question to ask, submit this to our youth ambassadors on and it might make it into the event!

Stay into the afternoon for our free outdoor Block Party with Rinse FM.
