The 50th Anniversary of the Summer of Love is an unmissible cultural and community event and it’s taking place in San Francisco right now. Colloquial Collective in London will help play out the celebrations and excitement in a free series of public events in London, this July.
“Will somebody wear me to the fair?
Will a lady pin me in her hair?
Will a child find me by a stream?
Kiss my petals and weave me through a dream ”.
Minnie Riperton’s Les Fleur was a musical piece that was inspired by the Flower Power movement.
2017 will mark the 1967 Californian milestone of peace and harmony, a time to reflect on the influences that have affected our world since then. An eclectic series of events, from music, performances and poetry will take place in London. We want to share in the harmony from across the Atlantic and send our well wishes to San Francisco as it celebrates a far out and far reaching reminder to love one another.
So make sure you wear a flower in your hair and be there.
