Please join the magical, funny, profound and healing Ambient Jam Collective for their performance as part of the Liberty Festival 2022!

Ambient Jam improvisations are playful, mindful, surreal, and sometimes wonderfully messy, creating sensory ways of being that benefit us all. Enjoy an unfolding evolving landscape where you can hang out and just be, or join in and improvise with us, or a bit of both.

At an Ambient Jam session, people can stay as long as they like and leave when they want to. The Collective suggest taking the time to acclimatise, simply sitting with your eyes closed. It is even okay to fall asleep.

You are welcome to use the space to rest and decompress. You are also welcome to take part by improvising through vocalisation, stillness, movement, and drawing. You can choose where you go, watch from a distance and move around.

Ambient Jam artists will be present to guide you through the improvised experience.

The event is free but booking is required!

It has been presented by the Mayor since 2003 in locations across London including Trafalgar Square, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and Southbank Centre. Since 2019, it has developed into a touring festival, taking D/deaf and disabled arts to local communities when it was embedded into his flagship programme, London Borough of Culture.
