RICH MIX YOUTH TAKEOVER FESTIVAL
Rich Mix Youth Takeover Festival is dedicated to young people, offering a range of creative workshops, live music events, fashion shows, film screenings, masterclasses, panel discussions, gigs, industry advice and more.
The YoPro Collective consists of a group of young producers based in London and Kent who came together at the start of 2016 to produce various events for Battersea Arts Centre’s Homegrown Festival. The YoPro Collective are looking to work with a wide variety of different artists to create exciting, innovative productions. The collective is currently working with Rich Mix to produce a scratch night, featuring various artist’s work.
WHAT IS ‘SCRATCH’?
The basis of a scratch is about sharing a piece of work with the public at an early stage of its development. Participants in this scratch will have 15 minutes to demonstrate their work and then receive feedback from the audience, followed by an informal Q&A, where artist and audience will get the chance to discuss the work. A scratch aims to provide artist a chance showcase developing work with the guarantee of constructive feedback. We want to help you take your piece to the next stage!
This Scratch is a platform for you to express your feelings and experiences.
There is no theme provided but we are looking for original devised pieces. Work that incorporates various elements and is unique, expressive and alternative. Your work does not have to be naturalistic or tell a ‘story’.
The scratch will be followed by an open-space discussion on the following theme: Changing London.
Has your London changed? What is it about this city that keeps us wanting more? From issues such gentrification, housing bills and rising tensions - come and create a dialogue with us! Artists can use this opportunity to network and build connections.
Informal auditions will take place on Sunday 25th July at Rich Mix and is a chance for us to meet each other and discuss your work, the collective and festival. Please make sure you are available all day.
