I was pleased to be a part of the online cultural exchange and public dialogue on artistic freedom in Lebanon held by Freemuse and ESA Business School, as a receiver of the #smallchanges mini-grant from Freemuse for my project "Free Music Education For All"
in which I presented my project and take a part in the panel discussion.
The event took place on 24 November 2021 at 15:00 – 17:00 CET online.
The open dialogue aimed to define problems artists and cultural workers face and identify possible solutions, suggestions, and related stakeholders.

Six months ago, on July 11, Cuba experienced a historic day with protests in more than 50 locations. Cubans raised their voices, demanding freedom, economic reforms and access to basic rights such as health. The responded with strong repression: 1,320 people were arrested, including young people and children. Thus, Cuba became the largest prison in Latin America.

After being physically and psychologically tortured, political prisoners face up to 30 years in prison for protesting peacefully. Artists have not been an exception. The regime brutally condemns anyone who dares to think differently.

Luis Manuel Otero Alcántara is one of them: a visual artist in prison for six months, in inhumane conditions, without a trial date and on charges of disobedience, resistance, contempt, incitement to crime and public disorder.

We firmly ask the government, once again, for the freedom of all political prisoners on the island. If you want to know the work of the artists who face the government, we invite you to visit their latest exhibition: artspaces.kunstmatrix.com/en/exhibition/7785828/arte-en-resistencia

In August 2020, Yahaya was arrested, charged and sentenced to death for allegedly "hurting religious sentiments" by sharing a song on WhatsApp.

The Kano State High Court ordered a retrial in January 2021 because of procedural irregularities during the trial. Ten months later, Yahaya continues to be under arrest and could still face grave consequences for the charges that he is facing.

Yahaya has faced blatant violations of his right to life and liberty, including his right to freedom of artistic expression.
