We all know there’s something very special about the Isle of Wight. As well as the beautiful landscape and close-knit communities, there is a vibrant arts scene, spanning all generations.
There comes a point when young people, bursting with creativity and enthusiasm, suddenly realise they want to share all with the world and that’s when things become interesting. New blood and new ideas spark creativity in others and that in turn helps the art scene remain fresh.
Make way for ROCKET FUEL
Next month sees the launch of a new hub for youth, arts, music, photography, culture and fashion.
It’s called Rocket Fuel.
Available both physically and digitally, ROCKET FUEL thrives on community and creation – inviting young Islanders to get involved with voicing themselves and creating a range of articles, interviews, poetry, cartoons, stories, and more…
The launch party for Rocket Fuel magazine’s first edition and the Website is being held at Quay Arts in Newport on Saturday 9th April.
The evening promises live music from:
Dreamer Joe // FURTHERMORE // Lucille Effect // Reminders // Fox Rawding // Asbestos // Jack Barnes // Plus other exciting things to happen throughout the night
Entry is £5 on the door and you’ll get a magazine and a ‘coveted goodie bag’ too. The event takes place between 7-11pm on Saturday 9th April.
