New Creatives: Top Tips

For the past (almost) five months I have had the most wonderful opportunity to work with Rich Mix and thirteen other fabulous young people attempting to employ all of our artistic ability and channel it into an event we can be proud of. Sounds easy enough, right? So, so wrong. I had literally NO IDEA the level of work and professionalism that goes into orchestrating an artistic event, especially when they appear to play out so seamlessly from an audience perspective.

The Talented Rich Mix Team: Issue 6

This month, we caught up with Bryan Lewis our Building Manager.

Part of the Rich Mix team since April 2017, GCSE Drama was the reason Bryan forged a career in the arts "I got an A and I never looked back."  He's worked in venue management for most of his career across many West End theatres, as well as spaces in East and South East London. You can also catch Bryan on stage as well as backstage, as he is also a successful stand-up comedian.

 

 

The Talented Rich Mix Team: Issue 5

From Sydney, Australia, to London, UK. For 22 of the 30 years since she hopped across the pond, our Schools and Outreach Officer Tracy Barbe has lived and worked in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.

Her professional journey started with Secondary Art teaching, and Youthwork with Girls & Young Women, with detours though Newham and Hackney delivering schools sessions on a floating classroom on the Victoria Dock to facilitating the ‘Cities for Children’ programme for schools and communities for Groundwork East.

The Talented Rich Mix Team: Issue 4

This month we talk to Gemma Unwin, the Private Hires Manager at Rich Mix. 

Hailing from Nottingham, Gemma has worked in events for many years on varying scales and timelines. She came to Rich Mix in 2015, and continues to drive the success of the private hires department, which supports our charity and outreach programmes as all profits from hires go back into this work.

THE TALENTED RICH MIX TEAM: ISSUE 3

In this issue we find out more about our Programming Coordinator, Natasha Clark.

In the role of Programming Coordinator, once the Artistic Director has curated the programme she organises the nuts and bolts of the events and makes sure Rich Mix deliver the artistic vision, within the capabilities of our building. This can mean a lot of running around, admin and coming up with creative and practical solutions to artists requests.

Meet Road Gals LDN, the collective behind 'PIRATES LIVE'

Road Gals LDN is making waves in the arts scene with their strong ethos of celebrating road gal culture, UK music and focusing on promoting and amplifying women’s voices.

Following a week-long residency at Rich Mix, they presented PIRATES LIVE, an exciting showcase of emerging artists and musicians. I sat down with the founders of Road Gals LDN, Jasmine Kahlia and Abondance Matanda, to talk all things pirate radio and road gal culture...

On Road Gal Culture:

IN THE GALLERY: NOT.BANKSY

The Artist behind our recognisable imagery for TAKEOVER festival, Ellis Lewis-Dragstra, has curated an exhibition of artists whom have not necessarily exhibited before. Taking to Instagram to find undiscovered young artists, he has pulled together an honest, fresh and unpretentious exhibition that really focuses on the most important thing - the artists behind the work - in a no frills kind of way. The exhibition is free and available to visit throughout the duration of TAKEOVER festival in the Lower Café Gallery.
