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.
