Newham Unlocked Festival, 2021

As part of Newham Unlocked Festival and in collaboration with Festival.org, ‘Rathbone Roots’ is an outdoor arts festival, celebrating local creativity and talent.

Held at Rathbone Market, Canning Town, I engaged and programmed an array of artists and produced the event. I also engaged partners Anchor House (a homeless charity) who’s residents performed at the festival.

Line up included: choreographer and dancer Joseph Toonga, The London Reggae Choir, Pan Steel Band, Somali & Chinese local groups, Quincey the comedian, and hip-hop participatory artist Mechanikool.
