Hackney-based Inès and Camille were fed up with the strains that gentrification had placed on local creatives, forcing them to spend time and money commuting around London to meet like-minded individuals to collaborate and connect with. On top of this, they had to find meeting, rehearsal, and exhibition spaces – what they needed was a local solution. They have worked together to build this sense of community in Hackney, providing creative hubs in the area where creatives can connect, communicate and trade skills. Thus, Ricochet was born. ricochet-art.com
On Thursday 4th October, Dalston Roof Park will host Ricochet’s first event. Local artists will exhibit their work, and local superstars Average Sex, Cosmic Strip and Fake Laugh will provide acoustic accompaniments to the evening.
Where? Dalston Roof Park, E8 3DL
When? 4th October, 6-11pm
