Strummer of Love

There are various events planned this year by Joe Strummer's family and friends to commemorate the ten year anniversary of his death with the Strummer of Love festival. Check out the Strummer of Love website here.

This Sunday, 6th May, if you're in London you can go along to the free Let's Go Global-a-Go Go workshops from midday.

Here are the details:
London based artist Kitty Finer is calling out to all corners of the globe as part of a world-wide fan-art venture- LETS GO GLOBAL-A-GO GO.

This summer, Strummerville will be hosting the Joe Strummer 10 year anniversary festival – Strummer Of Love and as part of Jazz Domino Holly’s Handmade Hangout tent, Finer will pay homage to Joe by curating a fan made shrine.

The shrine will be based on the vibrant, layered and ephemeral stalls found at Spanish fiestas, a tribute to Joe’s affection for Spain.

In the spirit of Joe Strummer Finer is urging fans to gather together and form collectives to create hand made offerings. Each and every contribution will be individually photographed and added to the on going and expanding installation.

In the words of Joe Strummer “Without people you’re nothing” so this project needs you! It is in the hands of the fans!
