Thank you to everyone who joined us last Thursday for an introduction by Ellen Greig, Curator: Commissions at Chisenhale Gallery to Lydia Ourahmane’s exhibition, The you in us. The talk was followed by a listening event with Lydia Ourahmane and artist Hiba Ismail, who translated the lyrics of songs from a selection of 7-inch vinyl by Raï musician Mohamed Belkhayati. Thank you also to everyone who attended The Soundhoppers' workshop for families last Saturday. The event explored deep listening and the different properties of sound through play, using a range of soundboxes and games. All images by Sam Nightingale.

On Friday 16 March, Lydia Ourahmane hosts an evening of live sound performance at her home in Brixton. Doors open at 7pm, and performances begin at 8pm. This event has now sold out.
