PASSIONATE ABOUT LOCAL HERITAGE?

Then we want to hear from you!

Our team of Heritage Volunteers will be instrumental in researching, gathering and recording the heritage which rests at the centre of our AMP (Art, Music & Pop Fashion) Kingston project.

ABOUT AMP KINGSTON:

With young people, this project is an exploration of Kingston’s music heritage from the 1960s – 1990s. This heritage will be identified, recorded and accessed in a range of interactive, sustainable ways. Through uncovering this heritage, the project will not only explore some of the most iconic musical acts of the late twentieth century, but will also celebrate pop fashion, costumes, album artwork, band posters and more.

AMP Kingston will place younger people at the front and centre when it comes to the shaping, planning, delivery and engagement of this project. Together, we will
explore a time period that was rife with bold, charismatic and entertaining advances in artwork, music and pop fashion.

Three themes have been identified. These will be explored through a series of free intervention exhibitions, and younger person-led creative interpretations.

  • Art – the rise of artwork in branding and logos for music artists.
  • Music – the musicians and artists themselves but also the promoters who enabled their performances to be seen.
  • Pop Fashion – the influence of pop fashion in relation to the creation of musical personas and identities.
