I’m really interested in this project and will be following closely and posting any news on this blog. NOISE (www.noisefestival.com) is a national online showcase of creative talent for people aged 25 and under. Although its national, it was set up in the North West mainly by Arts Council NW and NWDA.
It was launched last Thursday at Tate Liverpool where as well as speeches from people such as Culture Minister James Purnell and Mark Eley (of Eley Kishimoto – one of the UK’s top fashion designers) we watched Killa Kel (the Human beatbox) and Angel (X Factor finalist) perform an excellent short set.
The Curators also include Peter Saville, Wayne Hemingway, Anthony Wilson, Daniel Brown and the prominent artist Stella Vine who I was pleased to chat to at the launch. She’s really excited about the whole thing and looking forward to looking at every one of the artists submissions.
