The People’s Carnival – a project celebrating the history of Rock Against Racism at and beyond Alexandra Palace. Inspired by the archives of Rock Against Racism Carnival Finale which was held at Alexandra Palace on 14th April 1979. We are working with Haringey Shed to activate and narrate stories relating to the Rock Against Racism tour through dance and costume workshops. These workshops will culminate in an immersive and interactive dance performance by participants from Haringey Shed’s performing arts groups. The performance will coincide with one or two nights of live music at the palace. The project in short will include: 1. One day workshop (Dance & Costume). 2. Self Portraiture photography of the participants (which will be archived) . 3. Live performance intervention coinciding with one or two music nights. 4. Visual RAR archive materials in the form of badges distributed to concert goers to raise awareness of RAR history,
