The London Salon: Counter Culture
Time Out 50th Anniversary
Museum of London
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Time Out magazine, YOUTH CLUB's Jamie Brett hosted a panel discussion with the photographers, storytellers and radicals who helped shape London's diverse countercultural history.
How do subcultures form, and does counterculture have a future in the city of tomorrow?
The panel curated by Time Out and YOUTH CLUB includes Tony Sleep, who photographed a squatted street in Notting Dale, west London, which in 1977 declared independence from the UK, DJ and writer Princess Julia who was part of the Blitz Kids club scene, photographer and Time Out's nightlife editor Dave Swindells, Chardine Taylor-Stone, founder of the Black Girls Picnic and drummer in feminist band Big Joanie, Paul Richards of the Long Live Southbank campaign and grime photographer and journalist Laura Brosnan.
The event is part of the Museum of London's salon series exploring the city from new angles and critiquing the lived experience of London, with a mix of film screenings, panel talks and readings.
