1. FUSEBOX

FUSEBOX is a new multi-arts space run by Creative Youth – a Kingston-based charity who enable young people to get involved in innovative, original and ambitious projects and realise their creative potential.

As Creative Youth’s HQ, it is the main exhibition venue for the AMP trail, with a host of exciting things to explore. You can watch our ‘Gogglebox’ film, capturing the reactions of young viewers to some groundbreaking music performances across the decades; browse through our LP Memory Stand of seminal albums linked to Kingston, read the intergenerational reviews and listen to the albums on our record player; walk through our ‘Lyric Forest’ to connect more closely with the song-writing of the times; and learn about the evolution of street styles across the decades in our fashion display. You can also listen to oral history testimonies covering four of Kingston’s music venues: 

There is also an interactive venues map which is a compilation of the various locations that Kingston locals have cited over the course of our research.

Artist Saskia Gall (@saskiagall) created a fantastic David Bowie Face In The Hole for AMP and the Bowie and Beyond exhibition at Kingston Museum. It is now at FUSEBOX until 23rd March 2024 so come and take your photograph and post on Instagram with #AMPBowie
