We’re excited to be taking mezcal to KIN: a new four-day event from the makers of Shambala Festival. Taking place at Arnolfini Centre for Contemporary Arts in Bristol on 8 – 11 November. KIN is an immersive gathering of musicians, artists, thinkers, activists and doers, including discussion, workshops, music, games, skill-sharing and much more.
It’s a festival, an immersive art show, a temporary autonomous zone for people with big imaginations – and mostly, a massive, unprecedented experiment. There will be talks, workshops and games from the likes of Emma Dabiri, Chidera Eggerue (The Slumflower), Paul Mason and Polly Higgins. Come evening, KIN has line up of innovative performers, eco-sensual drag art, music and DJs. For a taster of the musical line up: heavy weights Ras G, DJ Krust and Tom Ravenscroft join folk dynasty Eliza and Martin McCarthy, legendary Ethiopian jazz musician Hailu Mergia, and emerging international power group GRRRL.
Gente de Mezcal and New Dawn traders will be bringing the stories of Mezcal to KIN, sharing its tastes and ancestral knowledges. Elsewhere on the programme there is a chance to delve into old wisdoms and new economies: with global activist collective the Rules running their Neo-Tribes workshop; Mac MacCartney launching his book The Children’s Fire; a panel discussion on Rewilding the self; Feral trade artist Kate Rich will be sharing stories about democratised, environmental trading activism; and much more besides.
