Random Artists have opened a new building which will provide workshop space for artists and will also host weekly events. The building is situated in the centre of Hackney, north London, and we hope that it will bring back some vibrancy to a borough which has seen many of its social and cultural assets stripped away.
The building will also host a new record shop, Riot Squad Records, where the remaining hard electronic music makers are collaborating to bring some sadly neglected sounds back to the people of London. The shop will open Thursday to Saturday each week starting THIS SATURDAY 3rd. For up-to-date info on the shops location, or to listen to mp3 previews of the stock check out http://www.riotsquadrecords.co.uk …..the location will also be on the Riot Squad number 07092 041071.
There will also be a cafe and gallery space open this Saturday with some films being shown in the evening. As ever, everyone is welcome to bring down contributions to the gallery space but this time there is some great workshop space which needs to be used as well. We don’t know how long we might have the building for and so we should not let it go to waste. Come down and see why!
If anyone wants to hold an exhibition, event or meeting in the building then please get in touch to discuss how it might work.
We still need some things to use the place to its full potential…. please bring down anything useful you can donate. In particular we could do with locks, hasps, bolts etc. photographic chemicals & photographic paper and any other art materials at all, furniture, tetchy tat – computers, monitors, TVs etc…. kitchen stuff, pots, pans, cutlery, cups – and a fridge!
Hope to see you at the building sometime soon.
