I woke up this morning with a sudden realisation that I had not stuck to my challenge of writing a piece every day!
Art in the Garden is an event put on by two boys with passion, passion to believe and stand up for something and courage to follow it through. Together with the support of an amazing team, they form The Sargeant & Kavuma Project. A project dedicated to revolutionising the performing arts industry and creating a platform for many younger talented artists to share their talents.
Art in the Garden was certainly as the name suggests, with an eclectic mix of spoken word and music, the night was filled with finger clicking frenzies and moments of pure silence. Silence where the crowds were taken in by the deeper beauty emanating from the stage.
It’s shocking to see how many undiscovered and young talent there is but yesterday provided copious amounts of joy and I felt very privileged to be able to take it in, consume, reflect and enjoy art in a peaceful and tranquil setting. Dalston Eastern Curve Garden – a quaint secret garden in the heart of East London definitely set the scene and helped to create the right ambience on the night.
Perhaps I am a bit ignorant but I was completely taken back by the amount of outstanding talent prevalent in the younger generation. Such wisdom, creativity and intelligence exuded from their performances, it was absolutely remarkable.
I definitely learnt a thing or two and went to bed with a smile on my face from exploring new avenues and catching up with old friends.
If you haven’t been to an S&K Project event, seriously check one out, these guys have got it nailed and are doing something spectacular for the younger performing arts culture.
Definitely one to watch out for – they are on the road to blowing up.
