Hi Everyone!

My name is Franky and I am a young documentary maker. I am currently doing some research into the UK 90s rave scene and its legacy and am particularly interested in the remarkable and iconic flyer art that emerged from the scene.

I am hoping to find out more about the history of rave flyer art and the community of people who now work so hard to preserve them. With the increasing closure of iconic nightclubs and underground spaces, an enormous amount of cultural history is being lost. I think it is essential to try and preserve as much as possible, especially of such an important movement.

For my research, I am trying to speak to as many people as possible about flyer art, including artists and collectors. Last week, I spoke with the artist Junior Tomlin who explained how he had got involved and the development of his flyer artworks.

I am posting to ask whether anyone would be willing to help me with my research? I would love to hear about your experiences of the rave scene, how you first got interested in rave flyers and what compels you to keep collecting.

Any time you can spare would be fantastic and there would be absolutely no obligation to appear in any future documentary.

Thanks so much!
Franky
