Grime Waltham Forest
This Autumn we are producing Grime Waltham Forest, a project to celebrate the borough’s contribution to the creation and development of grime music.
In November, a series of events will take place across the borough to shine a light on the artists, producers and promoters who helped to create the grime genre back in the early noughties. These will include gigs, film screenings, panel discussions, talks and lyric writing and beat-making workshops.
Alongside this, one of our project partners, MVP Workshops, will be delivering a film-making project for 16-25 years olds, starting in October half-term.
The group will create a documentary about the history of grime music in the borough that will be screened during Waltham Forest’s year as the first London Borough of Culture in 2019.
We are recruiting and training a number of volunteers to support the project in the areas of photography, blogging, filming and event management.
We are delighted to be working with a number of partners to deliver this project including Chantelle Fiddy, Diesle D-Power, Girls of Grime, Lemzi, MVP Workshops and Stow Film Lounge.
The project is being funded by National Lottery players through a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund and with support from the London Borough of Waltham Forest.
