This January, it will be three years since we lost Mark Fisher.
As in 2018 and 2019, there will be various events going on around Goldsmiths to celebrate his memory. There will be the third annual Mark Fisher Memorial Lecture — speaker currently unannounced — but it’s gonna be big — and, as ever, our for k-punk party which has been organised by a small group of current and former Goldsmiths students on very little time and for very little money.
The last two years have been incredible occasions and anyone who came to last year’s night at Ormside Projects will know that this celebration has become serious business. It’s a super important night to a lot of us and a necessary accompaniment to the lecture-hall celebrations of Mark’s legacy.
Unfortunately, they still cost money. As much as these events run on the charity of others, it is also really important to us that they are done right. That means suitable venue hire, fees for artists and all that stuff.
So, what better way to raise money for a big party than throwing a smaller party?!
