Culture never fails to excite, delight, and surprise us. From entertainment and music to literature and art, it gives us a sense of belonging and plays a vital role in enriching our lives. After a hugely challenging year for the creative industries, we’re toasting new beginnings in our new Super Culture podcast by meeting remarkable people from a range of disciplines who are inspiring change, joy and positivity in their artistic fields. We’ll hear from them about their early influences and the cultural moments that have shaped their careers, tastes and outlooks on life. 

 

The Selfridges Super Culture podcast series, hosted by Natty Kasambala, is designed to help you reflect, be inspired, and hear from key voices in art, culture, and design.

Super Culture: Art with Guts

It might be hard to admit, but there are still parts of the art world that are not accessible to everybody. So, what does it take to be a disruptor? To acknowledge you have privilege, and use it to create opportunities for those who don’t? It takes guts.

In this final episode of our Super Culture series, we speak to Ellie Pennick, Director of Guts Gallery, a community empowering underrepresented voices in the arts. Ellie talks about her early experiences of culture, what it takes to create a level playing field and the sculpture that changed everything

Super Culture: Fashion Matters

Fashion has the power to transform us into whoever or whatever we want to be. But away from the glitz and glamour, it is a platform that can be used as a vehicle for change.

In this episode, we will be speaking with Gareth Pugh and Carson McColl, Co-Creative Directors of Hard and Shiny. The pair talk about the art that shaped them, the evolution of queer culture, and how they use fashion to tell important stories.

Super Culture: The art of memory

Cultural artefacts tell us the story of our history. They are portals to the past, which some believe hold memories of where they have been.

 

In this episode, we’re joined by multi-disciplinary artist Hamed Maiye to talk about the significance of cultural objects, how he uses memory to fuel his art, and why his heart will always belong to south London.

Super Culture: Everybody dance

The late Alvin Ailey said, “Dance is for everybody”, because why should it be reserved for only a few, when it has the power to touch so many?

Super Culture: Get Your Skates On

Why walk, when you can glide?

 

Lockdown led many of us on a search for joy and freedom, and for some, that was falling in love with roller skating.

 

In this first instalment of the Super Culture podcast series, we speak to skate dancer, instructor and influencer Ishariah Johnson, also known as Stormskater. In the episode, we discover what inspired her to put her skates on, how comic books influenced her moniker and why life can be so much better when you’re feeling the roll.

The Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet

This episode’s a walk in the park. A national park, that is. Today, we’re stepping off the beaten track with walking group Black Girls Hike, to roam free on the green (and sometimes snowy) hills of the Peak District.

The group’s founder, Rhiane Fatinikun, takes us back to where she first had the spark of an idea to give black women a space to explore nature together. Now, several years and many walks later, Black Girls Hike is a non-profit organisation that spans the country. Representing ‘more than a walking group’ to its members, Black Girls Hike highlights the power of sharing the things we enjoy most.
