THE PEOPLE & THE VIBE, IN PICTURES
Last Dance is a major Lighthouse programme led by our Associate Artistic Director, Elijah. Presented as a series of blogs, podcasts, films and live events, taking place across the UK from June 2017 to June 2018, Last Dance is a timely and urgent investigation into the rapid changes affecting UK club culture, and the impact of those changes on music and youth culture.
FINDING FANON ALBUM LAUNCH & SCREENING
In June 2017, artists Larry Achiampong and David Blandy presented their Finding Fanon project – a moving exploration of race, identity and globalisation inspired by the psychiatrist and anti-colonial radical Frantz Fanon.
The event included the launch of Finding Fanon Sequence, a limited edition double album based on the Finding Fanon film series, alongside a screening of the film trilogy, followed by discussions with the artists, lead by Associate Artistic Director Elijah.
MUSIC PRODUCTION WORKSHOP
In July, we hosted a music production workshop by Garage and Grime producer Flava D, who talked through her creative process with a demonstration of Ableton music software. The session was attended by an enthusiastic and knowledgeable audience of young DJs, producers and musicians, some travelling from as far as Huddersfield and Birmingham.
OFFICIAL LAUNCH PARTY
Following the music production workshop, Elijah and Flava D held a talk and Q&A session about the future of DIY creativity with an audience of local creatives.
