LAST DANCE: RE-IMAGINED FUTURES
Join us for discussions on The Rise of Radio and the launch of Typical Girls issue four.
This event is part of the Last Dance: Re-Imagined Futures programme. The evening will begin with a panel discussion on The Rise of Radio. Technological advancements, and the increase in online radio stations, mean that live broadcasting is now accessible to a wider network of radio presenters and DJs. We will be joined by Nabihah Iqbal, Natty Kasambala and Fauzia Habib for a panel discussion on what the next phase of radio will look like. Hosted by Saygal Yusuf.
This is followed by Typical Girls issue four magazine launch. Typical Girls is an independent print magazine, run by a small team of Women of Colour, which launched in 2015. For their fourth edition Typical Girls present The Typical Issue – which seeks to explore how gender intersects with issues of race, class and sexuality in contemporary society. Join Typical Girls for the launch of The Typical Issue, with talks, DJS and a gallery of featured work.
