One of the mini-projects conducted as part of the AIR Network focused on “Engaging with Industry” – trying to highlight the relationship between Mukuru residents, the neighbouring industrial area on which so many residents depend for their livelihoods, and the pollution that this industry produces. The Engaging with Industry team included rapper Rafat, and together with Mukuru Kings and Suby he made a song called Mazingira, highlighting the issue of air pollution. The video features footage of the Hood2Hood festival, attended by over 1,500 Mukuru residents in September 2018.

Thanks to Mukuru Kings, Suby, and to Cressida Bowyer of University of Portsmouth for leading the Engaging with Industry team!
