The Ditch

Take a leap into the unknown and join us for this festival created by London’s next gen creatives.

Taking over The Ditch at Shoreditch Town Hall, LIFT’s young producers have created an all-day festival of creativity exploring the issues they care about most. Working in groups, the young people have been on a journey to learn how to become a producer by putting together their own event as part of LIFT’s 20222 programme.

A ticket to UpLIFTed gives you access to the various workshops and events taking place at Shoreditch Town Hall throughout the day. Some workshops and events have limited capacities, however - if there are specific events you wish to attend at particular times, email phil@liftfestival.com detailing these, and we will reserve you a space to guarantee entry. The schedule for the day will be published here soon.

遺 комнаты (Rooms Left Behind), 12pm-5pm

Working with Ukrainian artists who’ve had to flee Russia, and Hong Kong artists who left their city, Amy Tong and Anna Ostrovskaia have created a theatrical installation exploring the idea of what it means to be a political migrant and how it feels to leave your home behind.

Step into the rooms to see, touch and smell objects, once packed for everyday life, and now abandoned forever. Immerse yourself into the story, through video projections and exhibition.

Presented by Amy Tong & Anna Ostrovskaia
Creatives: Gun Suen, Tanya Kargaeva, Mola mola, Sasha Dömina, Tatiana Knyazeva

Choosing the Margin, 2pm-5pm

Khadija Choudry, Qing Li and Nyasha Duri offer a series of workshops that explore ideas around the intersection between culture and identity. A place to play, reflect and celebrate, take part in a series of tactile and bite-sized workshops that give you the chance to see, create and imagine new worlds through the eyes of others.

Rising Stars of the Galaxy, 7pm-10pm

A showcase of the talent of young musicians, playing beats from around the world. Curated by Reuben Johnson and Jhonattan Goncalves, this evening of live music and DJs will take you on a journey through the galaxy. We’ll see you on the dancefloor.

About LIFT's Young Producers Programme

LIFT is passionate about supporting the next generation of creatives. To fill the final spot in the 2022 programme, LIFT has partnered with Shoreditch Town Hall to bring together a group of young Londoners to take a deep dive into the live event producing process. Over 16 weeks a group of 11 young people passionate about social change, inclusivity and making live events a more accessible and representative space, will learn everything they need to know about producing multidisciplinary performance. LIFT’s Young Producers Programme will see UpLIFTers - the festival’s six-year project in Tottenham - go London-wide, connecting young people across boroughs to learn and create together.

Supported by Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, presented by LIFT and Shoreditch Town Hall.
