Join us in October for some exciting new workshops and events. This month kicks off with Cult to Culture, a three-month residency by Raindance, a rave event, which is celebrating its 29th birthday. Expect exhibitions, music, whistles, records and rave!
Thursday, October 11th, 6:00 pm: Cult To Culture: Skippy's Archive the Cult of RAINDANCE: A History of Misbehaving 1989 – 2009
Join us for the opening (and the first of many events for Cult To Culture's three-month residency at our store!) of this special event showcasing an archive of photographic images from Raindance's own late resident photographer Skippy. His legacy stands to unearth the true history behind Raindance's rave story. Skippy's work, which includes previously unseen photographs, will be curated and shown amongst archival event posters, archive video and text.
The opening event will include a hand-picked selection of DJ’S from the Raindance family and complimentary drinks. This event is free and open to the public.
Saturday, October 20th, starts at 1:00 pm: Highgate Cemetery Tour – with the Diana F+
Join us at Highgate, right by the box office, where we will run through the basics of shooting with the Diana F+ camera. Learn how photographic accidents and early manipulation lead to occult photography in the 1800s and create "ghosts, spirits, auras, ectoplasm" in-camera — a totally analogue way! We'll experiment on the fantastic backdrop of Highgate Cemetery’s east side while enjoying a walking tour to make our own unique images.
This workshop is £20 and includes the loan of a Diana F+ camera, a roll of 120 film, entry to Highgate, and developing costs. You must pre-book as spaces are limited. Ring 02074341466 now!
