The Whicker World Premiere: ‘It’s Not Easy Being Green… and Black’ 6pm-7pm
What does £7,000 of documentary funding give to the world? A fine piece of audio brilliance, that’s what. Join us for a special live performance and world premiere of Isis Thompson’s 2018 RAFA (Radio & Audio Funding Award) winning work. Charting a new growing landscape of activism in the UK, the piece will be performed in collaboration with composer Axel Kacoutié. The audio showcase will be followed by a Q&A with Isis Thompson.
