Reggae fans and industry professionals are invited to a meeting in Harlesden to explore projects ahead of next year’s Brent Borough of Culture.

BritishBlackMusic.com/BlackMusicCongress (BBM BMC) is hosting a meeting in Harlesden Library on Tuesday from 6pm to 8pm.

International Reggae Day (IRD) and Brent Borough of Culture, including a No Bass Like Home project in October will celebrate what's best of the genre next year.

The meeting is aimed at all reggae stakeholders - artists, producers, promoters, DJs, journalists bloggers, broadcasters, publishers, academics and fans - to come in to Brent and explore reggae and black music joint bid projects and forward planning for next year.

"We've thus far committed to a reggae album sleeves exhibition, but are very keen for collaborative work across Brent next year," says BBM/BMC founder Kwaku.
