Fratton Trail - Majid Dhana ‘JidosReality’

room 11 ECHOES

Portsmouth
Born in Zimbabwe, Harare, Southern Africa, Majid is a spoken word poet & former Artist in Residence at Aspex Gallery. Following his experience of being deemed statelessness for over three and a half years, which resulted in him becoming homeless, Majid works with people within the refugee or asylum-seeking community. With an understanding of how it feels to have nothing, no liberty or freedom, Majid’s poetry is informed both by his own life and his new home in Portsmouth. He champions other asylum seekers, giving a voice to those who don’t have one. A frequent collaborator with Journeys Festival International, Majid has contributed to several projects relating to the refugees’ crises, working with organisations including British Red Cross, Friends Without Borders and local organisations dealing with migration, homelessness & displacement. Previous work includes Look Up, with visual artist Natalia Michalska, commissioned for Journeys Festival International (2018), The Container Project (2017); Not Waving but Drowning; and collaborations with the New Theatre Royal. Majid’s work whilst Resident at Aspex Gallery has been featured in exhibitions in Athens. Most recently Majid collaborated with artists to display work at the refugee camps & grave sites in France & Syria.
