Recently I got invited into a private warehouse-graffiti party. And the first thing I saw when me and my mates entered the place was a bunch of people drawing on walls,
Obviously, since we got invited, we already knew what to expect, thus we came prepared as well. We occupied a free spot on a wall and started scribbling:
Good music, that after became a live band’s performance, audience that is of ‘arty’ type, and art itself complimented the experience of this secret gathering.
These sort of hidden communities properly define London as a place for people interested in arts. It’s not Tate Modern or other publicly advertised and commercialized institutions that are worth of attention, but rather a place where people can get in close contact with art itself. Instead of taking a position from standing point of view.
The only thing that might be bothersome, is that you can attend a place like this only through networks. But people here are friendly, so as long as you’re willing, you can come to the next party as well!
See you there?
