Interview by Pearl Wise for SeedTheCity
On this week’s show we speak to the artist behind the elusive colourful mushrooms growing around East London, learn how to make shoes without any stitching, look up at buildings with some senior explorers, talk sculptures with Christine Ohuorugu and talk to one the brains behind co-working space Creative Blocks. The music is of course from bands playing in East London soon, including: Dressmaker, Laurence Crane, Julia Holter, Soul 2 Soul and Slow Club.
A little something from the EastCast back catelogue: You have probably seen a multicoloured mushroom or two on rooftops across the East End, and former EastCaster Tom Du Croz managed to track down the elusive artist responsible for them.
The Line is a sculpture walk that will run right through East London, showcasing new as well as established talent. With just a few weeks to go before opening time, Newham born and bred athlete Christine Ohuruogu talks to The Line sculpture walk in support of their venture.
