Show Details

A special in conversation event with Sudanese born author-Australian broadcaster, social advocate and mechanical engineer Yassmin Abdel-Magied.


As an advocate for the empowerment of women, young people and people of colour, Yassmin founded her first organisation, Youth Without Borders, at the age of 16 and has since traveled the world speaking to governments, NGO’s and multinational companies on a range of topics, and has delivered keynotes and workshops on unconscious bias and inclusive leadership.

At the age of 16, she published her debut memoir, Yassmin’s Story, with Penguin Random House at age 24, and followed up with her first fiction book for younger readers, You Must Be Layla, in 2019.

The Roundhouse,
Chalk Farm Road,

0844 482 8008

From modest Victorian beginnings – beginning life in 1846 as a steam-engine repair shed – to legendary cultural venue, the Roundhouse has an enviable heritage. The Grade II* listed building is now home to a bold and exciting programme of live music, theatre, dance, circus, installations and new media.

Young people are at the heart of everything we do. They're on our board and help plan and perform at our events. We offer a year-round schedule of creative projects for 11–25 year olds in 24 state-of-the-art studios, where facilities include TV, radio and music production, media suites and rehearsal rooms for music and performance.

It's the interaction between artists on stage and 11–25s that makes the Roundhouse unique. Young people have interviewed Paul McCartney for Roundhouse Radio, filmed a documentary on NoFit State circus, and worked with Apple to deliver live streaming of events. 

The Roundhouse is a charity and we can't survive on ticket sales alone. Income generated from private/corporate hire and from generous individuals, trusts, corporate sponsors and public funders helps us to raise the £3m we need each year towards our artistic programme and work with young people.
