About us

 

It started with music

Muzicadelic Entertainment is a non-profit organization that since 2007,  works through culture to facilitate integration, promote community building and to combat discrimination and extremism. We started though in a more humble fashion as a cultural organization promoting hip hop culture from the north of Sweden- with the band Khumalo.

And later became a platform for human rights

We use participation in culture as a tool to highlight diverse stories and narratives and stimulate people to become global citizens that fight against racism, hate crime and defend human rights. Our work strives to highlight that art can be used to create a better world. So far we have caught the world’s attention.

Our film We are like oranges” became the first film against hate crime towards Afro-swedes won the “Best Foreign Film Award” at the LA Femme International Film Festival in Hollywood, 2014 and the “Best Practice Against Extremism” in the visual media sector by the EU, 2016. Parts of the film music also won a Global Music Awards, written by Cecilia Gärding and Mikael Haines. The film is now a part of the Oscars Film Archive.
At the premiere for “We are like oranges, 2012” at SF, Umeå.

We are also involved in human right projects in which we have written the first report on the living conditions during 2016 in Umeå for the African diaspora community. We have also built schools in South Africa, “The Margaret Haines and Ulf Gärding School” for underprivileged youth. We have also worked with members of ADYNE- with youth projects for afro swedish youth in Sweden and in Portugal for better living conditions and workers rights for the African diaspora.

Today the missions grows

Today we run the Eurotopia project with the aim of creating 21 short films against extremism in Sweden, Belgium and Italy. We are a socially aware cultural production organization that realizes that being a part of the dialogue changes the narrative. We also offer EU-consultancy for organisations and companies that are interested in doing EU projects when referring to for instance how to combat Climate Change, Social exclusion, Child Poverty and Extremism. This is just the start. Join us in making the world a better place!
