The last few weeks I have had the privilege of being one of the artists in residence at the #IITSPITATION HQ.
“#IITSPIRATION is powered by the exchange of creative ideas. The concept is simple: we offer like-minded creatives access to space and resources; in return they pledge time and expertise to respond to creative briefs and inspire others through the sharing of skills.”
The experience so far has been a fast paced creative melting pot with my fellow artist in residence, Ashton John, Jessica McDermott, Blingwear UK, Justin Marosa, Sara Shamsavari, Christopher Tulloch and Bwoy Wonder to name just a few. This forth-coming week is the last chance to get down and get involved in the space. Have a look at the line up and book tickets here.

On Thursday you can sing until you hearts content at the Vocal Workshop with the House Gospel Choir or if Grime is more your type of music then you are invited to join True Skool x Skinny Malone EP Release party. On Friday there will be real time music and visual experimentation with Digijam x Pixel People and the last event of the week is the #IITSPIRATION wrap party where you can meet the artist in residence and expect a kaleidoscope of lyricism, music, conversation, performances, film and interactive art.
