Celebrating (and revitalising?) Lowdown Magazine
Helen Hristofski (Barking Gecko) was recently avoiding doing budgets, and found boxes of old Lowdown magazines. She loved seeing Noel Jordan flexing his biceps, Graeme Gavin’s mullet, Wesley Enoch in high-top sneakers… and shoulder pads and fringe perms on the ladies! But she also loved the rich articles and is proposing a pilot Lowdown 2.0. Articles, papers, research and evaluation would be sought from the sector, along with ‘where are they now’ updates. Helen, along with Sue Giles and Fraser Corfield, will be discussing this with the sector at the ATF and the Youth Arts Summit. In the meantime, Tony Mack’s digital archive is a beautiful thing!
