Imagine a world with no rules, no restrictions, and no labels.  This week a group of 16-25 year olds are exploring what NO LIMITS means to them. The outcome of the project next Saturday could be a performance, a screening, an installation, or some other form of creative expression. After the event there will a Q & A with the Young Creatives.

Stoke Newington Beer Festival is on next weekend (17 & 18 Feb 2018). It’s at  Abney Public Hall, 73A Stoke Newington Church Street, N16 0AS. Entrance is £32 which gets you 1/3 pints of 14 local beers plus some other stuff. Booking and details here.

The Next Station is a part of the global cities and memories project. This is what they say about themselves: “Cities and Memory is a global field recording & sound art project that presents both the present reality of a place, but also its imagined, alternative counterpart – remixing the world, one sound at at time.

Every location on the sound map features two sounds: the original field recording of that place, and a reimagined sound that presents that place and time as somewhere else, somewhere new.”

A new group of diners – the flexitarians – has appeared, who are trying to eat a more healthy diet. Even the Germans are eating less meat!
