A quiet masterpiece...
Is house music coming back? Did it ever leave?

Which trends are stuck in a doom loop of nostalgia? Which offer a path forward?

We have some music for your ears... thoughts?

A sneak peek into our truly angelic curation for Chateau Royal Hotel in Berlin.

Hi, I'm Amel-Ophélie, I’m an independent cultural researcher, specialising in arts, subcultures & decolonisation. My research journey started with my master's thesis on creative practices as tools for liberation, specifically focusing on music, cinema, and photography. Since then, I have been active in cultural heritage as an independent researcher, doing it my way, knocking on doors, finding common interests, and researching within their space: this has been exceptionally valuable to me and the places I researched. So far it is the most impactful way to apply my knowledge and experience.

This DIY approach to research led me to run Social Responsibility & Impact at a music sharing platform. During my year of research there, I researched the current impact of the platform in terms of representations and broader cultural impact, social influence, and mechanisms of exploitation of the music industry.

I researched creative education, narratives & youth cultures for a non-profit, and was guest editor, for which I defined an editorial line, organised creative dialogues, and curated contributions to the knowledge-sharing platform. A love of knowledge naturally comes with a love of sharing knowledge. I gave engaged pedagogy workshops based on the work of Paulo Freire & bell hooks and actively joined the very inspiring Unlearning School series at AHK led by the fantastic Mieke Bernink. The educational space is in need of a structural change, more alternative methods are being developed and I’m in awe of the people named above for their capacities to imagine new ways to teach and learn. My ultimate goal is the democratisation of knowledge on creativity and its impact on society. I aim to develop new ways of indirect education, outside of the educational space, through research, curation and publication.

Thank you for reading, ao
