After a period of shortlisting and final interviews we’ve selected our final participants! We’ll be announcing names as soon as the visa decisions come through.

Participants come from a wide range of backgrounds and disciplines to collaborate in what will prove an exciting and compelling group dynamic for a collaboration with graduates from London College of Communication and an established music producer towards the public performance on Friday Dec 13th.
