Hailing from Nottingham, Gemma has worked in events for many years on varying scales and timelines. She came to Rich Mix in 2015, and continues to drive the success of the private hires department, which supports our charity and outreach programmes as all profits from hires go back into this work.

In this issue we find out more about our Programming Coordinator, Natasha Clark.

In the role of Programming Coordinator, once the Artistic Director has curated the programme she organises the nuts and bolts of the events and makes sure Rich Mix deliver the artistic vision, within the capabilities of our building. This can mean a lot of running around, admin and coming up with creative and practical solutions to artists requests.

Meet Road Gals LDN, the collective behind 'PIRATES LIVE'

Road Gals LDN is making waves in the arts scene with their strong ethos of celebrating road gal culture, UK music and focusing on promoting and amplifying women’s voices.

Following a week-long residency at Rich Mix, they presented PIRATES LIVE, an exciting showcase of emerging artists and musicians. I sat down with the founders of Road Gals LDN, Jasmine Kahlia and Abondance Matanda, to talk all things pirate radio and road gal culture...

On Road Gal Culture:

IN THE GALLERY: NOT.BANKSY

The Artist behind our recognisable imagery for TAKEOVER festival, Ellis Lewis-Dragstra, has curated an exhibition of artists whom have not necessarily exhibited before. Taking to Instagram to find undiscovered young artists, he has pulled together an honest, fresh and unpretentious exhibition that really focuses on the most important thing - the artists behind the work - in a no frills kind of way. The exhibition is free and available to visit throughout the duration of TAKEOVER festival in the Lower Café Gallery.
