Friday 21st Oct. 6.30pm- 7.30pm Rock House Basement, Gotham Alley: Elijah – Keynote Talk and Q&A – FREE
Elijah is an artist, writer, DJ, manager and curator. Having run the independent and influential grime label Butterz that he founded with Skilliam in 2010, his daily writing project of ‘yellow squares’ on Instagram represents his reflections, ideas, questioning and curiosity about the creative process and what it means to be an artist right now, posing many questions that often don’t get asked, i.e. how much does it actually cost to run a club event, or that some would rather not be asked at all. We’re honoured to have Elijah join us at Sonics 2022 for a talk and Q&A as our opening session.
