I was lucky enough to attend the Converse #Consproject in Peckham on Thursday, I invited my friend from oxford to come with me as I knew she would love the concept. The aim of the event was to celebrate the end of their workshops, parties, talks and exhibitions created to enthuse the minds of creatives in London. I think the best way for you to get an idea of the event is to show you through pictures…
Once we finally got into the event ( The Q was huge) we headed straight to the bar standing in line is thirsty work! We each got a Rum and Coke and preceded to explore the venue.
The Bar was simply dressed with metal work, trainers and beer there was an inbuilt recording studio which was use for the music production workshops, room dedicated to photography and images of all those that had been involved in the events, workshops and master classes. Among these were some of Grimes* favorites Bashy, Kano and Dizzie Rascal.
Lets move on to the music! The music did not disappoint and we had the privilege of two stepping the night away whilst our ears were graced with the musical duo known as Mount Kimbie.
If you haven’t heard of them click here and have a little listen, once your done so you will understand how happy me and my friend were * cheesy grins all round* as we love a good beat!
And of course no night would be complete without a few selfies and a photo booth memento!
So there you have it a brief insight into our visit to the Cons-project Final Party!

*Grime is not garage
Grime is not jungle
Grime is not hip-hop and Grime is not ragga.
Grime is a mix between all of these with strong, hard hitting lyrics. It’s the inner city music scene of London.
And is also a lot to do with representing the place you live or have grown up in.
