Ginger works is proud to have had the brilliant researchers Brett Lashua and Paul Thompson in residency at our Leeds freeroom for the past two months as they prepared their 'Mapping the book' installation.
Brett and Paul are contributing to and editing a book 'Popular Music in Leeds; Histories, Heritage, People and Places'. The book features 18 chapters from 23 authors with content ranging from histories of the City Varieties, Leeds Carnival, and punk and post-punk venues to accounts of folk, indie rock, hip-hop and dance music scenes in the city.
Tonight, we hosted the book launch at Ginger Works to bring together and celebrate all the authors and editors who have contributed to the book. To find out more, head over to their collaborators profile!
