'CONVOKER: Sound from South Camden' and other events at The People's Museum in Camden



'CONVOKER: Sound from South Camden'

The People's Museum is hosting a May Day event by local artist Hannah Sawtell. 'CONVOKER' on 1 May is about class and struggle, as prompted by a walk-through Somers Town and environs.

Sawtell will expand on her sound work Mayday: Radio Raum 2022, a collage of voices and sound, commenting on and responding to the meaning of the May Day workers' festival. 

After a presentation, Sawtell will lead a discussion of how working-class people and movements for change are represented today, in the midst of widespread strikes.
The event includes a video interview RMT leader Mick Lynch

Professor Esther Leslie - Academic
Mick Lynch - RMT Union General Secretary (video contribution)
Emily Pope - Artist and Director of Montez Press Radio
Hannah Sawtell - Artist

Tragically over 80 of these beautiful 1930s ceramics have disappeared – selling at auctions, but you can now help restore some of them. Read more here.
