In addition to The W Project taking part in the Tate Modern Tanks "Art In Action" on Monday, ISYS are kicking of the Bank Holiday happenings with "Paved With Gold"  as part of the Undercurrent:  Young People's Festival.  Collaborating with NTS Radio, the event is the result of a two year project focusing on tapping into and uncovering London's current youth culture in the format of a "City Symphony".  It's an exploration of one day living in the city thru the eyes of the upcoming generation in a film formatted to a soundtrack of live performance comprising of collated sound and samples from artists curated by NTS.  The documentary footage captures the social signifier style  and traits adopted  by the the capital's  subcultures emerging in 2012.  Whilst the world's eyes have been on the Olympic Games and Jubilee, this is a chance to celebrate the real London and exactly what is bubbling under the surface on every residential and high-street.  Delve deep into the archive over at ISYS to investigate further subcultures and scenes of this magnificent multicultural melting pot - all sensitively unveiled via their anthropological work.
