Reports from Other Continents
This November, Le Guess Who? will launch ‘Reports from Other Continents’, in which people from all over the world share video reports on topics such as art, culture and music from within their local community—made specifically for, and commissioned by, Le Guess Who?.
Reports from Other Continents is a platform for people to tell their own story.
Typically, Le Guess Who? would share these kinds of special, worldwide musical traditions and cultural developments through concerts and performing artists; but with that not being possible this year, we decided to reach out to artists, musicians, and creatives across the globe to find stories from within their local communities that should be shared with the world. The response was overwhelming, and during LGW ON we are proud to share reports from over 20 different locations.
Below is a full outline of the reports, their makers & the topics they address.
