- Thursday, October 11th | Cult To Culture — Skippy's Archive the Cult of RAINDANCE
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 party starts at 18:00. There'll be a hand-picked selection of DJs from the Raindance family and complimentary drinks. The event is free and open to the public.
- Saturday, October 20th | 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+. 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.
The workshop starts at 13:00 and costs £20, which will cover the loan of a Diana F+ camera, a roll of 120 film, entry to Highgate, and developing costs. Slots are limited, so call us 02074341466 to reserve yours!
