BLAB: How Do You Shake Off The Emerging Label?

BLAB: How Do You Shake Off The Emerging Label? | Secret Location (Revealed 48 hours before event)  | 7 - 9pm | Monday 30th July


Join us and special guests asking the question "How do you shake off the ‘emerging’ label?". We will be turning the space into a studio-esque with audiences sitting on judges chairs. Guest speakers are auditioning for YOU to turn around and agree, elaborate, challenge, provoke or even disagree with their statement.

BLAB stand for BackLash Against the Bland. It brings together aspiring artists and activists with people on the cutting edge of relevant fields and goes beyond the tired panel discussion format to inspire debate and foster deeper connections. It asks questions which don’t have easy answers, but impact directly on an artist’s life and work.

The way BLAB works

We will release the question posed & time of event with no venue or guests, in the run up we will announce guests. With 48 hours before the event, everyone signed up to the eventbrite will receive a private email on location.

We promise

  • To shake the event up (from content to format)
  • To never ever just give you a panel discussion. Think hanging guest speakers to mockery TV shows.
  • The venue will always be as close to city centre as possible.
  • The venue will always link to the question.
  • You will have a chance to say your piece

We can not promise answers to your questions, just a different perspective.

This event is brought to you by Free Radical, as part of the Beatfreeks Collective.
