CONVERSE ANNOUNCES THE LAUNCH OF CONS PROJECT LONDON‏

Converse announces the launch of CONS Project London, the latest installment in a series of global community projects designed to inspire the next generation of creative spirits through music, art, style and skate.

The ambitious 10-week project will help to unleash urban creativity within the community using the space as a hub for a series of talks, workshops and exhibitions; all aimed at inspiring young people, giving them opportunities to learn whilst fueling their creative passions.   

Five local CONS Ambassadors have curated the project: James Benenson (Urban Nerds), Alex Synamatix (The Daily Street), Scratcha DVA (Rinse/Hyperdub), Jerome Campbell (Converse Cons Skate Ambassador) and Sam Taylor (Vice/Little White Lies).

The CONS Project London workshops will offer tangible, hands-on lessons for local youth ranging from age 16 and above, at no cost.

To kick things off, US hip-hop legend PUSHA T will be launching CONS Project London when he takes to the stage at the official opening party on Thursday 29th May. Pusha T, one half of iconic hip-hop duo Clipse, is now signed to G.O.O.D. label and is sure to get the party started in style. Support will come from rising London rap duo KREPT & KONAN, talented Glaswegian producer RUSTIE and Rinse FM regular SCRATCHA DVA.
