Call to Take Part: October 17

 

The Binary Graffiti Club. Call for Participants. Volunteers wanted.


Would you like to be part of something fun, arty, in London later in September and October? The Binary Graffiti Club is looking for volunteers to take part in an experimental art project.


The BGC, formed of a group of young members aims to explore themes of control and identity in the city in response to a sense of disillusionment and lack of trust as well as a general apathy within youth culture. We are seeking to collaborate and invite individuals and groups to take part in a series of workshops and activities that will ask the participants to be active and engaging in both their own environment and local community. We are nothing more than zeros and ones however even as zeros and ones this give us agency hope and the ability to affect the code and therefore the system. We are active agents of change . It's up to us as the assets to direct the flow rather than just bob about in the wave.


We are looking for volunteers to take part in a series of upcoming events. The activities include:

1. Taking part in a workshop making the BGC Graffiti statements. We want to works with students, youth groups, teams, office workers. Each workshop will be 2 hours long. The aim is to think about and engage in a discussion about politics. The objective is to come up with the statements which will be used for the book and the best will be made into graffiti stencils to be used in the streets and gallery exhibition. There is also an optional afternoon graffiti seesion. SEE HERE FOR MORE DETAILS.

2. Making graffiti in the streets using the newly made stencils whilst incorporating the manifesto and the BGC objectives. No experience needed just a willingness to turn up and do it. You will be shown what to do given stencils and paint and a hoodie. Small teams of six people will go out to make graffiti around Hackney and the arebyte gallery in London.



3. Exploring the local area and creating a series of public interventions which will be documented and used as part of a contemporary art exhibition. Up to 25 people needed to come in a large group and wander around having their photos taken for a series of artworks to be made and exhibited. No experience needed just a willingness to turn up and have some fun.



4. Taking part in a choir singing in binary code. Can you sing? Would you like to be part of something fun, arty, musical in London which will be made into to a short film? The Binary Graffiti Club are looking for volunteers to take part in experimental vocal workshops led by artist Stanza and musician Richard Frostick. We are looking for 30 people for three dates. ie three sessions of three hours. Two session for rehearsal and one to film it. The musical score will be composed of a series of binary codes extracted from a newly published book made from public contributions. All you have to do is turn up and sing, and take some instruction. The aim is to have fun creating music and make a piece of art (a film) which will be exhibited later in the year. SEE HERE FOR MORE DETAILS.

Manifesto

Creating new futures. How do we create a new world of active ingredients that is politically motivated. We want you to imagine your future, the future of the planet, the future of politics, the future of the city. We want you to imagine changing the world, your city, yourself. The Binary Graffiti Club workshop aims to find out what future scenarios the young would like to see and be involved in. The workshops are geared to finding some answers to this question. The result will be turned into graffiti. Working in small groups you will be encouraged to think and come up with ideas based on certain scenarios IE what three things would I do if youI were the prime minister.
