Every other month since October 2015 the William Morris Gallery late slot has been commandeered by lively and thought-provoking acts, carefully co-curated by Walthamstow’s Vine Collective and The William Morris Gallery.

The free-to-attend night is as raucous as it is eclectic, with guests that have included Luke Wright, The Quietus editor and writer Luke Turner, Submarine author Joe Dunthorne film maker Shelly Love, poet Martha Sprackland, and illustrator and toy monster-maker Pete Fowler, to name a few.

But sadly Vine Collective’s tenure at William Morris is to come to an end soon. Transmission on Thursday 8 August marks the last collaboration between curator and gallery, at least for now.

On this final night, the stage will be graced by gritty poet Salena Godden, Time Out writer Ellie Broughton and Walthamstow DJs Eastern Front Collective. Proceedings will kick off with the award-winning Clayground Collective, who will be passing on their skills of making beautiful things out of earth.

Vine Collective was founded in 2014 by Kirsteen McNish and Darren Smith, with the first gig at Blackhorse Lane Workshop. Their goal was to bring like-minded people together in a free, accessible environment without the usual formal trappings of a book reading. The night included sets from artists Rob Auton, Michael Smith and local band The Cats Knickers, with DJ Leo Smee (Chrome Hoof).

The formula has proven to be a success. Each night at the gallery has been packed, with the boundaries between artist and audience more relaxed than conventional gigs so that conversation between the two sides can flow, and the audience can debate and discuss topics raised amongst themselves and with artists in the gallery bar.

Each Vine Collective curation at the gallery has been inspired by its exhibition at the time. Transmission sits alongside Clare Twomey’s Time Present and Time Past, in which the ceramicist is creating a tiled interpretation of William Morris’s Chyrsanthemum with the help of 68 apprentices over 68 days.

Transmission is also a chance for you the public to make yourself heard with the gallery’s first open mic night. Willing spoken word performers, poets or musicians should turn up at 6.30pm promptly to sign up for a 5-minute slot.

After the stint at William Morris Gallery, Vine Collective is heading to the Royal Institute of British Architects on 9 August with The Magnetic North. They’ll be performing their new concept album The Prospect of Skelmersdale, which explores the theme of utopian dreams, new towns, and people and places. It features readings from writers Amy Liptrot, Laura Barton and John Grindrod plus the premier of their new film and a full band line up. The first 200 to the event will receive an exclusive publication of writing by Bill Drummond entitled The Sweetest Hangover written specially for the event.
