Every year he organises prominent cultural meetings dedicated to human rights (concerts, conferences, workshops, screenings and debates) in Mauritania.

One of the goals of Shelter City is to broaden the networks of our guests. Do you think you could help Yero with his work or do you want him to speak at an event or something similar? Contact us and we will get in touch! Keep in mind, this guest is no longer staying with us in Amsterdam, but we would be happy to forward your message so you can get in touch with him.
