Culture Move - Art Sampling Workshops

Culture Move image

Culture Move (Sampled History) is a new exhibition exploring the history of sampled music in Brent since the advent of Hip-Hop. 

Get involved by bringing your objects and images, especially those that relate to your culture and life in Brent, to be creatively ‘sampled’ in artwork for the exhibition.

Sampling methods are non-destructive and will create new visually rhythmic compositions.

You can take your work home at the end, or it can be entered for consideration in the exhibition, which opens in April, at The Library at Willesden Green. 

To take part in these free workshops:

Join us in the Education Room, 2nd floor, The Library at Willesden Green

On Saturday 21 March 2-4pm or Saturday 28 March, 2-4pm.
