'Galleries, Get it Together!' is a collaborative podcast created by South London Gallery based art collective “Art Assassins”, audio artist Weyland Mckenzie-Witter and researcher Dr. Patria Roman-Velazquez. It aims to explore the question: "What does an equitable and community-led Gallery look like and what stories should be told?"

Through weekly gatherings over 9 weeks, the group set out to interview: artists, (both independent and institutional) art workers and friends and family both native and new to south London. The result is an amalgamation of conversations and sound bites from all over, sharing different perspectives but also setting out to answer the question with the intention of implementing change within cultural institutions.

Despite the range of participants and contributors coming from different backgrounds it is made painfully clear that an immense change is needed across the London art sphere and so the Art Assassins titled their podcast: “Galleries, Get it Together!”

Interviewees include:

  • Tanya Wilson, South London Gallery’s Residents’ Programme Assistant
  • Lauren Gee, South London Gallery’s Schools and Young People’s Programme Manager
  • Jahzel Newell-Marshall, South London Gallery’s Residents’ Programme Coordinator
  • Hannah Olukoga, South London Gallery’s Assistant Curator
  • Rianna Jade Parker, writer, critic, curator and researcher
  • Barbara Majek, interdisciplinary artist, researcher and facilitator
  • Josephine Cine, interdisciplinary artist
  • Dr Patria Roman-Velazquez, researcher and founding Chair of Latin Elephant
  • Flo O’Mahony, Zoo Co Theatre
  • Art Assassins’ family and friends
