ClubTogether is an exciting new global mapping project from design studio Dorothy which documents and celebrates clubbing and rave culture. This new website is a place where you can share your memories of clubs from the past right up to the present by contributing to an interactive map.
Last summer Dorothy launched the Acid House Love Blueprint which mapped out the history of dance music and rave culture onto the circuit diagram of a Roland 303 bass synthesiser. I loved the design so much that it became the artwork for my Long Live House Volume 1: 1980s compilation album.
The new ClubTogether website is a direct result of the amount of feedback Dorothy received after their Acid House Love Blueprint was published with everyone wanting to contribute.
ClubTogether was created as a place for people to share memories of clubs and club nights from the past right up to the present onto an interactive map which responds in real time to content submitted by you, the clubbing community.
Try it for yourself and get involved by submitting your clubbing memories at https://clubtogether.me
ClubTogether will also be an exhibition and digital installation on Friday 17th May at Sevenstore in Liverpool as part of the city’s annual free Light Night arts festival. You’ll be able to immerse yourself in the sights, sounds and rituals of electronic music & club culture and contribute memories to an electronic interactive map display while I spin the tunes and provide the soundtrack to the evening.
Dorothy’s installation is a chance for fans of contemporary electronic music and ravers old and new to share their rituals of clubbing and create a community of shared experiences.
The exhibition is co-curated by Dorothy and Ian Mitchell, Lecturer in Graphic Design and Illustration at LJMU and you can get more details about this free event here: ClubTogether @ Sevenstore Liverpool 17th May 2019
