Our support is for six early career artists to be embedded in three significant commissions as they are developed for the 2018 festival. Identified through LIFT’s extensive networks in Tottenham, the artists will be paired on the basis of their complementary practices and will be involved as collaborators as well as having the opportunity to shadow members of the company and undertake mentoring. The participating artists are: dancer Elsabet Yonas; Spoken Word Artist Güneş Güven; choreographer/dancer Hannah Anderson-Ricketts; choreographer/dancer Duwane Taylor; music producer Josh Donkor; music producer Desty Engele; and music producer Mekel Edwards.
