Party initiators Stevie Wonderland have earned themselves a reputation over the last few years for their high caliber dances in Manchester and London. Combining in what should prove to be an interesting and fruitful partnership, they team up with the Students Union of South East London institution Goldsmiths University, co-creator of NxRecords and renowned academically worldwide for its particular superiority in creative studies.
The DIY Club project brings together the strengths of the two, to addresses London’s nightlife through a programme of discussion and creative application with the Students Union playing a key role. Launching on 1sth March with a panel discussion, the project invites figures from London’s clubbing community, local venues and councillors including London Night Czar Amy Lamé, Dan Beaumont of Dance Tunnel and Rhythm Section’s Anu; to openly discuss the current state of London’s club scene aiming to inform and inspire students and attendees.
This will be followed by programme whereby students attend workshops and masterclasses all aimed at and ultimately materialising in the curation of their own night in collaboration with Stevie Wonderland. From business to creative aspects, the programme will look to advise and apply it all, including promotion, stage and set design, live visuals and artwork.
Further mentorship post-project is also a possibility for those enthusiastic students wanting more involvement in the scene.
