The Mirrored Hammer

The fourth episode of The Mirrored Hammer: Art, Culture and Social Change airs tonight at 9pm on BCB 106.6FM. This episode focuses on varying approaches in socially-concious art and culture and its potential to effect change from the level of the individual to the social and environmental. It features excerpts from talks by Karren Ablaze about her new book ‘The City is Ablaze: The Story of A Post-Punk Popzine 1984 – 1994’; fragments of the Bradford One launch event with Griff Rhys Jones talking about the use of Bradford’s former Odeon Building as a cultural centre and music venue; artist Jeanne Van Heeswijk on sustainable socially-engaged art and the Homebaked project as part of the Liverpool Biennial; an interview with Interactive Arts trio Invisible Flock; and excerpts from Irna Qureshi and Chol Theatre’s rehearsed reading of ‘Cartographies of Love’ and accompanying discussion. There’s also bootlegs of live performances by Cowtown, The Jelas, Garfunkle and Simon, James Blackshaw and Matthew Bourne.

Last month’s episode is here if you want to warm yourself up:
