Un Conevntional Macc

An Un-Convention al Macc

Un-Convention have teamed up with the creators of iconic indie-rock footwear, Converse, to search for 300 of the UK’s most promising creative minds.

Winning applicants will be taken to The Un-Convention Factory on May 8th to work with iconic figures in independent music, such as, Har Mar Superstar, and Peter Hook from New Order to record, design and release an album, in only one day.

The Un-Convention Factory brings to life the advice shared at the previous conventions around the world, a living example of their DIT (Do It Together) ethos.

It takes place in the Heritage Centre in Macc, transformed for one day into a record making factory and creative space. Fine food and drink will flow as easily as informed conversation and there will be every opportunity to interact face to face with all the panel members in order to get the maximum insight and value from the experience.

The Factory will be a hive of activity, as well as the recording process there will be merchandise design workshops, a graffiti Sketch-Off and lessons on how to build electronic instruments. At the end of the day an exclusive gig will be staged by a selection of the musicians and every participant will walk away with a fresh pair of converse, a fresh perspective and a bulging knowledge base.
