Friday 26th April: Hyperlink Festival at TATE Modern Tanks with Mandem On The Wall

Today marks the beginning of the Hyperlink free festival at TATE Modern, set up specifically for the gallery's young audience to encounter creative industries first hand.  The three day festival will have live performances by rapper SwayAkalaAngelLady Leshurr and an acoustic set by Sebastian Blake plus spoken word from George the Poet.   There is also an itinerary of workshops from fashion photography with Rankin to zine-making with It’s Nice That, fashion design with Cassette Playa, to Aberrant architecture.  
To promote the scheme to the 15-25 year old audience, the TATE commissioned  YouTube sensations Mandem On The Wall  who met at the Brit School for Performing Arts and currently have a cameo feature in new E4 show 'Youngers'From their wall in South East London,  they relocate to Tate Modern in this special episode within the London landmark's Turbine Hall and galleries of the former Bankside Power Station.  Alongside Margot Bowman and Aaron Frew, I make a little cameo appearance in the story too which was a great fun morning shooting and certainly not my average Modern Art gallery experience!!
