Mission // Misplaced Memory presents 'Shebeen Sounds'

Bobbie-Jane Gardner, dubmorphology, and Gaylene Gould

11 September 2015, 6-9pm

Artists: Bobbie-Jane Gardner, dubmorphology, Gaylene Gould. 

Mission // Misplaced Memory is an afrofuturist project led by the Data Thieves, an interdisciplinary collective of artists on a mission to collect the musical memories of the region’s shifting communities.

For Birmingham Heritage Week, Data Thief, Bobbie Gardner, launches Shebeen Sounds, an experimental research project exploring the memories which reside in self-proclaimed cultural spaces, or “shebeens”, around Birmingham.

Join us at Vivid Projects where Shebeen Queens will tell you more about the project over home brewed teas. You can also add to the Misplaced Memory playlist by bringing along your favourite vinyl records!

This event is curated by Bobbie Gardner and produced by Yasmeen Baig-Clifford and Ian Sergeant, Honorary Research Associates at University of Birmingham. The event has been funded by University of Birmingham’s Cultural Engagement Department.
