“We are now operating within the parameters of a ‘new normal’, and in a post-Brexit world. It is widely acknowledged that the past year has been a difficult and transformative experience for artists, musicians, venue staff, live music sector workers and music fans. All Systems Go is a multi-disciplinary and intersectional programme response from Centrala, where we ask a group of exciting artists to share their worldview through cutting-edge music and digital media, and invite music and arts fans to start the journey back to collective listening and watching together with us.” - Alicja Kaczmareck, founder-director of Centrala.
