Black Obsidian Sound System: Workshop

Wed 17 Jul 2019
17.00 - 21.00
Pay What You Can

The work of our artists is valuable and our events cost money to produce, but we also want them to be as accessible as possible. Therefore, we offer you the opportunity to pay what you can for this event.

Lancaster Rooms
New Wing

A workshop demystifying the technical operation and maintenance of a sound system.

If you’ve felt unable to access technical knowledge in the setting up and running of PA systems than this session is for you. As with all our events, this workshop prioritises queer, trans and intersex people of colour.  

Black Obsidian Sound System (B.O.S.S.) events prioritise the comfort and safety of Black and of colour women, femmes, queers and trans folk. We aim to make accessibility a priority. However,  we are open to everyone. As always - No racism, sexism, ableism, ageism, homophobia, transphobia, fatphobia or hatefulness. If any of the above is compromised during an event, please reach out to one of the collective members (in B.O.S.S. T-shirts).

Black Obsidian Sound System was established in the summer of 2018 with the intention of bringing together a community of queer, trans and non binary people of colour involved in art, sound and radical activism. Following in the legacies of sound system culture we wanted to learn, build and sustain a resource for our collective struggles. The system, based in London, will be available to use or rent by community groups and others with the purpose of amplifying and connecting us.

Please email studios@somersethouse.org.uk letting us know your name, age, gender, preferred pronouns and a sentence about why you’d like to attend the workshop.
