YADA YADA NOISE is hosting a Spoken Word Open Mic Night for all Hull College staff and Higher Education students as part of the Student Conference Week later this month.
The event - staged in association with The Student Union - will take place on Wednesday 28th April (7pm-9pm) via Microsoft Teams. Interested in booking a slot? Email firstname.lastname@example.org for further details and information.
Founded by MA Creative Practice student Alice Godber last year as a result of her love of working with creative people, YADA YADA NOISE aims to facilitate collaboration between students, other creatives and organisations with a focus on providing a supportive environment for people to express themselves and celebrate creativity.
Explaining how YADA YADA NOISE came about, Alice said: “It originally started as a monthly Spoken Word Open Mic at Hull College back in 2020. However, due to Covid-19, we had to postpone all planned gatherings and events and it was at this point that we decided to expand the project, which saw YADA YADA NOISE founded as a result.
“Essentially, we want to bring creatives together in order to harness collaboration, support mental well-being and expose new and upcoming Art in the City of Hull. There needs to be more collaboration in the creative sector between young and mature artists this will build a more productive and innovative sector that harnesses multiple disciplines.
“At the moment it is not where it needs to be. For example, not a lot of students seem to collaborate or share ideas and projects. There is so much talent and creativity but different courses, years and groups don’t seem to mix. Through YADA YADA NOISE, we want to entice and facilitate collaboration within the college, and the wider community through working on a wide variety of projects.
“Some events and organisations leave local artists feeling un-appreciated and like a tick in the box. This is not what YADA YADA NOISE wants to achieve. We want to host and use events to create exposure for upcoming and local artists and truly celebrate them. The ultimate aim is that we become one of the key contacts for the creative people of Hull, developing contacts across the city, locally and regionally.”
