  • LIFT Playlist Two

    24th November 2016

    Our regular #LIFTPlaylist is back!

    To help you get through the week, we’ve come up with a LIFT team approved playlist of shows to see, exhibitions to attend, music to listen to, and places to check out.

    If you are in need of inspiration, have a browse!

    ONE.  Dan is really looking forward to seeing ‘Putting words in your mouth’ presented by the Roundhouse and Scottee. 22 Nov – 3 Dec 

    “In the lead up to the Brexit vote, award-winning artist Scottee travelled across England to interview LGBTQI people angered by mainstream politics. His bold new production Putting Words in Your Mouth explores notions of belonging, identity and the legacy of Thatcherism, taking a hard look at what happens when communities are left behind.”

    TWO. Our Executive Director Beki has been enjoying the new Ology Album from Gallant, who happens to be playing at Islington Assembly Rooms in December. The show is sold out, but if you become obsessed like Beki is then see more tour dates here.

    And here’s another video link for your listening pleasure (with Sufjan Stevens)

    THREE. Are you itching to get into the new Design Museum? They have certainly hit the ground running but their exhibition #FearandLove looks particularly exciting. It promises to explore “networked sexuality, sentient robots, slow fashion and settled nomads.”

    You will most definitely find us there!

    FOUR.  Get a reality check from the new BBC2 show Black is the new Black, a series which covers the stories from all sorts of people, discussing what it means to grow up, work and live as Black and British today.

    Catch up on the latest episodes!

    FIVE. Last Friday the LIFT team had a cheeky after work tipple at Discount Suit Company, only a short walk from our office. Very intimate atmosphere and unique cocktails! Our personal favourites are the ‘Grapes and Grain’ and the ‘SmogCutter’, however we will need to go back soon to try a few others…

    Definitely recommended for clandestine meetings.
