The Lost Lectures

Andrew Kalleen

View the talk

Andrew is a rock star in every possible sense. As well as being one of the city’s finest buskers, he’s also an activist, who’s stared down police intimidation, faced arrest and spearheaded an unprecedented protest against the NYPD. After being wrongfully incarcerated last year for legally singing on the underground, Andrew inspired a guerrilla campaign, drawing on the city’s many buskers, performers and musicians who flooded the transport system in solidarity and performed the gig of the year. The event has been widely reported in global media and Andrew has since evolved into an iconic testament to music’s ability to effect real, social change. He’ll be talking to us about what street artists contribute to the urban fabric and the importance of knowing your rights. He’ll also be joined by some of the city’s boldest street performers to show us just what he means.
