Coverse CONS Project

Converse is financing a series of London-based arts workshops, talks, shows (and even a skate park, for God’s sake) designed to foster creativity, banner-titled the Converse CONS Project. Centralised at the Copeland Gallery in Peckham, the ten-week scheme will launch on 29 May with a party headlined by Pusha-T, and featuring Rustie, Krept & Kronan and Scratch DVA.

The latter will also join with bass DJ Deadboy in leading a mixing class on 14 Jun. Among other music-type highlights of the programme are ‘Sunday Sessions To Chart Success’, a seminar on London’s live scene hosted by Mixmag’s Joe Muggs; a screening of UKG film ‘Brandy And Code’ plus a Q&A with its director Ewen Spencer; and ‘The Pioneers’, a live look back at early jungle, drum n bass and garage, with PAs by Fabio & Grooverider, Critical Mudsic MD Kasra, and Zed Bias.
