Seke Chimutengwende – movement/text:

Different Skies – readings:
Different Skies Magazine publishes bold experiments in creative nonfiction, criticism, poetry and prose. Different Skies is a collaborative community open to anyone who wants to be involved. We meet, we talk, we build something tangible in the short and the long term. The publication is designed to counter alienation – a space of commonality with writing at its centre.
Jim Glover – art:
Jim Glover is an artist from London. He studied at City & Guilds School of Art, where in 2011 he was awarded the Painter & Stainers prize. His work explores the visual interplay of abstract elements: light, form, colour, movement and rhythm. His latest exhibition, ‘ENTROPY’ in 2016, specifically refers to the dynamic relationship between order and disorder, and the position we occupy in the universe.
Zachary Gvirtzman – piano:
Zac Gvirtzman is a composer and musician whose broad palate is balanced by a personal sensibility that comes across in his various activities. He has made work for film, theatre and dance as well as writing pieces for both small and large ensembles. His main instruments are piano, saxophone, accordion and clarinet and he has performed at the Union Chapel, the National Gallery, London Jazz Festival, the Queen Elizabeth Hall foyer, and many other venues in the UK and internationally.
