ICA Learning Associates SE1 United continue their exploration into creative identities through the medium of sound by hosting a relaxed and supportive evening of ‘work in progress’. The aim is to offer a platform to support and inspire young people under 25 years to keep creating against the odds to keep innovating, sharing and networking. Join a talk with music production specialists, DJs and talent managers exploring ways to create, share and promote your work. Relax and enjoy DJ sets from A.G the DJ and Tabitha Thorlu-Bangura, and catch a live performance from headliners House of Pharaohs.
