Hip-hop and the Care Tax

Kianamedia co-op’s new intern Kiana Kalantar-Hormozi has been busy working on her protest film about the iniquitous Care Tax project.

She’s decided on the genre for her film: she’ll create a brand-new hip-hop track to fight the Care Tax.

The message: being charged for assistance to move, breath, and live life is wrong. It’s a great fusion of Kiana’s  passions for film and music.

Scottish Hip-hop artist and beatboxer, Bigg Taj, will collaborate with Kiana to create the soundtrack. They met two years ago, when Kiana directed a film about Taj and his community project the Young People Army, for the Scottish Universities Insight Institute.

Kiana’s short film will be part of Scotland Against The Care Tax’s campaign – to abolish the unfair, double charge on social care for people who need support because of their disability. These charges undermine independent living and rights for those affected by it.
