FUTCH Club, a non-profit organisation has teamed up with Temporary Pleasure to run workshops on how to create a nightclub.
The workshops take place from 8th November to 12th November with a focus on inclusivity and community-based clubbing. They will contain lectures, design labs and courses on inclusivity and local scenes.
What Makes A Club workshop page says:
“We’ve spent the last decade looking at clubs from inside and out and believe brick-and-mortar clubs are broken: too rigid, top-down – and disappearing, To preserve the right to dance in the community we need to reimagine clubs – replacing rigid clubs, barriers-to-entry, and lost spaces – with fluid clubs, co-creation, and new beginnings.”
The end goal is for workshop attendees to design and create a ‘prototype’ club that will incorporate installations, DJ sets and performances made throughout the workshops. The prototype will be open to the public on Saturday 13th November for 10 hours.
The event will be a pay-what-you-can fee to attend the prototype club. The contributed fees will go towards artists, production costs and enable those “people who otherwise would not come” to attend.
“We believe that real collaboration and inclusivity makes for better music, dancefloors and opportunities for community-building beyond the club. In alliance with FUTCH, we aim to amplify local energies, marginalised voices and identities that are often locked out, together in a single week, we’ll build a prototype club space and platforming event that otherwise wouldn’t exist.”
