A guide to being courageous and community-minded, to disrupting and dismantling age-old power structures in work, life and politics, written by someone who has done exactly that.

The event is held online, 26 October, 7pm. You can book tickets here.

Magid Magid’s story might seem like an unlikely one. He’s a Somali-born black Muslim refugee who became the youngest ever Lord Mayor of Sheffield and one of the last UK MEPs.

Magid made headlines nationally and internationally for his creative ways of campaigning while not conforming to tradition and being unapologetically himself.

Magid had no idea that the poster he dreamed up for a local music festival in 2018 would go viral. The poster contained the 10 commandments he tries to live by.

He had no idea that this poster would come to represent a movement that has swept him to the heart of local and European establishment politics. Now, for the first time, he reveals the stories behind each of these ‘commandments’; what drives him, the obstacles he overcame and what makes him hopeful.
