Raising the Flag – Week 10: Beat This

Publication Date 26 Aug 2018
Description

A twelve-week programme of activities accompanies Lubaina Himid: Our Kisses are Petals. The programme celebrates the raising of the flag which sits on top of BALTIC's roof, taking place on each of the Sundays throughout the Great Exhibition of the North. Each week there will be activity at 11.00 to coincide with the raising of Lubaina Himid’s flag.

This week we're on Baltic Square for a lively performance by Beat This, a loud percussion group who believe that people with additional needs should be seen and heard. Beat This was born through a strong creative friendship with Brazilian art activists Afro Reggae who use culture as their tool to bring about change in communities. Beat This perform using percussion instruments from all around the world. The group are supported by the Lawnmowers Independent Theatre Company.
