Organised by Somerset House
Writer, director and moving image artist Akinola Davies Jr. hosts his second creative show and tell session for Somerset House Studios’ Grounding Practice series.
Open to guests who wish to share and discuss work, the event seeks to be a relaxed, informal environment in which a small group are able to meet, socialise, exchange ideas, and provide discussion. Inviting practitioners spanning a breadth of disciplines, the room will provide access to CDJs, PA, wall projection and TV screen, alongside the space to interact with fellow attendees; the USB input, HDMI cable, microphone, floor are open to those wanting to share.
The session’s emphasis on a low pressure and open approach to the show and tell format aims to allow for different approaches to sharing, with no obligation to formally present ideas to the entire group - smaller, one-to-one interactions within the space may be preferable for some participants, and moments for collective interaction will be offered at various stages throughout the evening.
Those wanting to present work independently to the group will be put in touch with Akinola ahead of the session via an expression of interest. Due to time restrictions, only a limited amount of attendees will be able to share in this manner, with slots allocated on a first come, first served basis.
