Emma has been documenting music and culture for decades, in print and on radio. She brings people together to discuss culture making and collective activity.

Emma’s book Make Some Space told the story of an under-the-radar music venue in London called Total Refreshment Centre (TRC) which was housed in an Edwardian chocolate factory and which was in the ‘90s a Caribbean social club. TRC closed in-part in 2018 but remains open as a music studio & recording space.

Her latest publication is Document Your Culture, which is designed to help you tell the story of a space or a community. It is a companion piece to Make Some Space.

“Why? Because we’ll need to be able to explain why grassroots venues, basements, skateparks, co-ops and community centres matter so that we can contribute to how they’re reshaped or rebuilt post-Covid.”

Emma hosts a monthly radio show on Worldwide FM where she invites cultural instigators young and old to share thoughts and music from the community around them.
