Launching at the Muse Gallery on Portobello Road in September 2018, Street Event Company is putting on a groundbreaking new photography exhibition called, Jump Up! Celebrating Legends of Carnival. In conjunction with partners Youth Club, Bigga Fish and RBKC, we are curating newly digitised unseen heritage photography, flyers and rare BFI films documenting the fashions, Carnivalists, steel pans, sound systems, artwork and history securing Notting Hill Carnival as a vital piece London’s eclectic history. During its two week residency at The Muse Gallery, a programme of talks and workshop will enlighten, engage and educate the general public and young people by local heroes sharing their stories of Carnival.
The project is being run by Street Event’s Community Interest Company, London Street Community Ltd, a not-for-profit organisation. Street Event is committing 50% of profits and labour on a pro bono basis to make the event a reality.
