What cultural stories do you have in your life and how can you tell them?
Emma Warren has been documenting music culture for decades, and this year she’s published her book ‘Make Some Space: Tuning Into Total Refreshment Centre’ – now she’s coming to the festival to inspire and equip us with the tools we need to tell the stories of our own communities.
Emma was a founding contributor to Jockey Slut magazine; worked at THE FACE; compiled the ‘Steppers Delight’ dubstep albums for Soul Jazz; made BBC radio documentaries and worked as the lead editorial mentor at Brixton youth-run publication Live Magazine. She has a monthly show on Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide FM.Emma published her first book ‘Make Some Space: Tuning Into Total Refreshment Centre’ in spring 2019 on her imprint Sweet Machine – tagline ‘put a little something in, get a little something out’. Sweet Machine will be publishing things you want to read on the internet, but don’t, because you have too many tabs open.
