After performing as part of this years’ Rockin’ for West Papua Global Peace Concerts, UK hip hop artist  CARPETFACE still had more to give. “After doing the last show, and then receiving such a moving letter from independence leader Benny Wenda, I got to thinking about what else we might be able to do. In the past I’ve had some experience running nonprofit events as a consultant, curator/promoter, and felt there was still a lot more good that could be done for the people of West Papua”.
