Using Brixton, (or an augmented Brixton) as backdrop, the project uses robots as metaphors for a future intake of migrants to the UK. It acts as a commentary on the cyclical nature of the working class in areas with diverse populations such as Brixton. The projects shows Brixton as a degenerated and disregarded area inhabited by London's new robot workforce.

The UK and European premiere of Japanese film maker Katsuya Nonaka’s skateboard and shakuhachi documentary Future is Primitive is set to screen at House Of Vans London on Friday 9th September’s edition of #SkateFryDays. In Future is Primitive, Nonaka talks to leading skaters from all around the world, as well as Japanese and non-Japanese players of the traditional bamboo flute, the shakuhachi. Although these are two seemingly very different activities, both are now encountering changing status and a rise in popularity. A new version of the shakuhachi is being manufactured which is easier to play alongside Western orchestral instruments and skateboarding has just been confirmed as being a recognised sport in 2020’s Tokyo Olympics. Alongside the screening, Katsuya Nonaka will be participating in a Q&A with Daphne Greca from Brixton’s Baddest skate shop. Future is Primitive, Friday 9th September 2016 at House Of Vans London.

We organised a sale for the woman that skate. Not trynna discriminate but sadly all industries do. Did you know that women pay around 37 percent more on everyday items with exactly the same functions as their male counterparts? Like pink razors are double the price than blue. Even kids toys are more £££. On top of that we live in a country that taxes periods as a luxury, taxing half the population. So maybe we didn't attract as many females as we were hoping. But at least every boy that came to the shop that week got a discount after having to listen to me talking about the fact and left pissed off about the sexist pricing in the rest of the industries. Skating being a very male oriented industry is one of the best places to start making a difference. Maybe by educating all males on everyday struggles we as women face might contribute to the Change :) I gave a small interview about that to Gyaldem, please read here Also co-hosted a rad event at Buster Matis with Page She after having a good radio warm up at Balami ...
