Harlesden High Street presents Link me at the Sound System ‘23 a group exhibition celebrating community and connectedness at the Notting Hill Carnival.

The exhibition features contributions from Savannah Marie HarrisLee ‘Scratch’ PerryJesse AkeleLinett KamalaCharlie PhillipsPJ Harper and Paul Anthony Smith

2023 marks 75 years since Lord Kitchener performed ‘London Is the Place for Me’ on the deck of HMT Empire Windrush as over 1,000 Jamaicans arrived in Essex. It also marks 50 years of masquerade bands (mas), food vendors, street stalls and sound systems at Notting Hill Carnival, one of the most visible celebrations of Afro-Caribbean culture in the UK.

Link me at the Sound System ‘23 invites artists from across the country to contribute artworks which represent their memories and imaginings of NH carnival.

We are excited to celebrate Brent’s Collective Rhythms with Harlesden High Street.

Join the Private View on 26th Aug from 6-9pm for soup provided by Paul Antony Smith. And get your nails done just in time for carni with Canelo Nails!
