Carnival Stories with Zakia Sewell and Tej Adeleye

The GPI in collaboration with NTS Radio invites you to come help kickstart a new digital archive with your own carnival stories.
Myth, music and memories of carnival will be explored through our combined archives of zines, publications, sounds and video. Bringing this all to life will be a talk and in-conversation with the legendary photographer Charlie Phillips who captured the politically charged Notting Hill carnival of the 1960s and Nicole-Rachelle Moore (writer and educator on Caribbean culture). We’ll also look at artists who have worked with the idea of carnival such as Sonia Boyce and curator Claire Tancons and will open the floor to you to explore the archive materials, to discuss and tell us your memories of carnival.
Led by NTS DJs and producers – the amazing Zakia Sewell and Tej Adeleye, this incredible session will need your voice – your contribution to help create a festival of sound to be broadcast on NTS Radio later this summer. You’ll have the opportunity to talk to Tej and Zakia about their roles in producing incredible engaging radio shows and documentaries and we’ll start thinking about how we can create new carnival archives…
