This year we are challenging the idea of what a bookshop can be for it's community. After having events in the shop last year we realised how it can be a real gathering place for people to come and hang out, discuss books, the arts and everything in-between.
We love supporting the arts in our community and have come up with the concept of "Bookshop Sessions" - a series of performances from a small intimate venue. This could be music (think ambient, chill etc...), poetry or even a one person play.
- Musicians with a difference - Artists exploring ambient music, chill, lo-fi, soundscapes, instrumentals, sound artists, electronica)
- Spoken Word Artists
- Performance Art
- Plays (1 or 2 person shows)
Here is a great example of what we are looking for musically...
At this stage we are just putting the idea out there to see if anyone is interested, so if you know someone making ambient music with a modular synth, running their harp through effects pedals or performing poetry please share this with them!
