Ridley Road Records - Artist residency @ Doomed gallery

  • Olivia Mathurin-Essandoh MA RCA
The aim of our month long RCA collective residency was to make the gallery more accesible and representational of the local community. The final outcome consisted of the formation of a community recording studio entitled Ridley Road Records and a week of workshops ranging from ‘alternative’ karaoke, designing record sleeves and creating contact microphones. 
The recording studio was made of solely found materials from the market the gallery is situated in and everything we built was donated to the local community garden after the residency had come to an end.
