at Halloween UNTAMED SPIRITS were at Passing Clouds www.passingclouds.org/

Many had journeyed from Abney Park Cemetery in Stoke Newington some were still wearing their shrouds. On the way the spirits were herded by police on bicycles. Down the Roman Road they marched and then like a swarm  they descended on the Victorian cobbles of Glebe Road  some were only part visible. 

"for the fourth year running, get ready to celebrate your creative dark side with the HALLOWEEN MARCH as we take over the streets of Dalston for one night. Passing Clouds calls upon all marching bands, flame throwers, luminescent phantoms, whirling dervishes and wailing banshees to burst forth and reclaim the streets of Hackney before rejoicing all night long to a wild vibes party at Passing Clouds. 

The parade congregates at 6.30 at the entrance to Abney Park Cemetery in Stoke Newington. 
At 7pm the parade commences down the Kingsland Road led by KWAME OWUSU and his company of master drummers and acrobats to Debeauvoir Square in Dalston where there will be hot broth courtesy of the Treehouse Cafe.

From 7.30: ALL NIGHT HALLOWEEN PARTY at Passing Clouds with wild gypsy magic from THE VAMP, spooky swing from seven-piece outfit THE SMOKEY TAPS led by EWAN BLEACH featuring LOUISA JONES. 5 before 10, 8 after. See images of previous years' marches below

This was written long ago 

Dalston's newest arts club is in the process of self creating/morphing. www.passingclouds.org/

Venue: The Passing Clouds Foundation
440 Kingsland Road, Dalston, London E8
Corner of Kingsland Road and Richmond Road Behind Uncle Sam's pub now called the Haggerston

Below is the "before" picture I took.  I was told the space is a state of frantic morph and would look different next time. I had to wait.  For now the place is art artifice and artefact. 

For the "after" less than a week later,  there was a party Passing Clouds Post-Cannes film industry party

Hibla was there to take pictures!
   

The Salon/cinema,  is upstairs. The picture is the studio/workshop, the downstairs.   It has been stripped back to its brickwork. The false ceilings are being removed and the space hives creativity. Fantasy banqueting tables centre and couches outer. 

This was the  printing works of the Hackney Gazette in the days of hot presses. 

There are  two well lit large rooms, with windows all round, an upstairs "salon" and a downstairs studio/banqueting hall/studio. 

Passing Clouds are s located at the beginning of Richmond Road just behind Uncle Sam's Public house  (Kingsland Road)  famous for its Sunday night jazz.  In recent times the space has been used to construct theatre  sets. It had a while as a solicitors office.

I am told that in days the space will emerge as a place of imagination. I hope to publish the "after "photo later/soon. 

The Passing Clouds promises: some of this happened;  some has moved on. It is an on going story.

"During the Day!
"Upstairs in the Salon: Free desk space, wifi and refreshments.
"Downstairs studio (pictured above) Painting drawing and sculpture classes.

"Friday: Live events and performance night
