Junk Jam

Junk Jam is a spirited multi-arts spectacle for young and old, specialists and community members, artists and designers.

With rich colour, fiery energy, vibrant choreography, and provoking masks, Junk Jam 2012 made inventive use of recycled and reclaimed materials to proudly demonstrate the possibilities of community Carnival arts.

With Cabasa Carnival Arts and No Eyed Theatre at the helm of the design and costume creation process, every performer became an integral character in the Junk Jam story. Junk Jam was showcased at several events in the North West and featured over one hundred participants, from beginners to professionals.

The masked aspect gave every Junk Jammer equality and anonymity whilst performing powerful and uplifting call and response songs and heavy-duty percussion grooves to echo in the streets and inspire generations.

Got plenty of junk lying around?
