Toast it! Dub and reggae music + lyric workshop for 13-16 years

Toast it! Dub and reggae music + lyric workshop for 13-16 years

Toast It!

For participants aged 13-16 years

This year hcmf// is working with the team that produced the book and film, Sound System Culture. The project documents and examines the culture that developed from the Caribbean community in the Huddersfield area and eventually expanded until it became world renowned in the global reggae and dub scene.

The Sound System Culture project has created a unique interactive sound system which will be housed at the Festival and will form the focus of free participatory activities on Sunday 29 November, including the Pop-Up Art School.

Toast It! is a FREE workshop taking place on Sunday 29 November, 1.30pm - 3.30pm, which will be led by Donavan Christopher, aka Dee Bo General, who is a rap poet and cultural reggae artist. He will work with participants aged 13-16 years to create lyrics to MC over reggae and dub music played through the specially created Heritage Hi-Fi sound system!

We can also offer taster workshops before the Festival workshop. This will give potential participants an idea of what the workshop will be about, and whether they want to get involved.

Just come along, or to book a place or a taster workshop, contact Sarah on 01484 471116 or by email at s.mcwatt@hud.ac.uk

Sound System Culture is a project developed by Let's Go Yorkshire which includes Heritage HiFi, a vintage-style sound system built by Paul Huxtable. This event has been kindly supported by the University of Huddersfield.
