About the speaker

Why is it important to preserve language and how it can preserve us.

For Orlin Milchev - Atila, survival is strongly connected to materialising reality into words, and to preserving and sharing stories. This Friday we’ll talk about language as a tool for survival - about the shapes and forms it takes in hip-hop music, about the darkness and the nuances; we’ll talk about one of the greatest manifestations of language, according to Orlin - cinema. We will share how each one of us can use language as a tool for survival in everyday life.

Come join us for breakfast on June 23rd at 8:30 at Bar Friday, where we’ll turn thoughts into words.

Orlin Milchev - Atila is a hip-hop artist and a director. He is the author of eight albums for a period of 11 years - 4 solo and 4 collaborations with other artists.
