http://i90.photobucket.com/albums/k2...nergyoct07.jpg The Synergy Project Friday, 5th of October 2007
Synergy is a magical indoor festival, combining musicians, DJs, VJs, performers, and artists from all corners of creativity, joined by various proactive NGOs and charities.
As an eventful and elemental summer rolls into autumn, the UK’s Conscious Party massive withdraw to our indoor hideaway for the colder months. Deep in the bowels of London, The Synergy Project aims, once more, to both entertain and educate, challenge and inform and, lest we get carried away with ourselves, to listen, learn and evolve interactively with the ideas and intentions of all who attend. Less a party and more a festival underground, it is hard to overestimate the diverse range of talent that is aired here. Leave your expectations at home, bring what you hope to find, and join in the dance and the debate in this growing conscious experiment.
Throughout the venue you will also find : Charity Stands, Workshops, Talks/Debates, Healing Areas, Organic café’s, and the friendliest vibe in London!

A series of talks will be held throughout the night in the Small World stage area: 'TOO YOUNG TO DIE': THE SYNERGY VIOLENT YOUTH CRIME DEBATE.
The killing of 11 year Rhys Jones in Liverpool was the latest in an 'epidemic' of attacks on and tragic killings of young people around the UK. Often the killers/attackers were young people themselves, who were usually part of various violent gangs. Many explanations for these horrendous crimes have been suggested: Poverty, Cultural Values, Lack of Male Role Models, Decline of Traditional Religion, Moral Vacuum, Race, Racism, Impotent Policing, Government Indifference, the list goes on and on.
SYNERGY brings together a varied panel of 'experts' consisting of people from various walks of life who will debate with each other and with the Synergy audience the causes of and possible solutions to the problem of Violent Youth Crime in the UK.
Featuring on the panel on the night will be Wizdom, (of Green Jade) who works from a Christian perspective with inner city youth and gangs , Camila Batmanghelidjh who runs the amazing Kids Company for young people in need, Norman Brennan (Victims of Crime Trust), an active cop and well known media commentator, who has tirelessly supported the victims of violent crime and Will McMahon (Centre for Crime and Justice Studies, Kings College) who has studied the youth crime problem in depth. The Synergy audience will be encouraged to participate in exploring this all too topical issue. In addition there will be rehabilitated ex-offenders called on to give their opinions.
This Synergy debate will be one of the most exciting and unique events in the history of Alternative Clubbing and should not be missed. 'LET'S SPEND THE NIGHTS TOGETHER': THE SYNERGY 2007 SUMMER FESTIVAL OVERVIEW!
