Dave Hendley: Rebel Music 1977 – 1998



An exhibition and tribute celebrating the work and life of our late friend and Graphic Communication Design tutor Dave Hendley.


Dave’s fascination with Jamaican music and photography never, ever ceased; he was hard at work assembling this exhibition prior to his untimely, shocking death in July. We have tried to remain true to his original vision which is now a celebration, not only of Jamaican music and his photography, but also to the memory of one of life’s true gentlemen.


The private view and tribute event will take place on Thursday 10 November from 7 – 11pm at the Platform Theatre Foyer bar with reggae sound system Downbeat Melody featuring Dub Organiser Hi-Fi, guest DJs and tribute speeches at 8pm.


Before the exhibition opens and in honour of Dave’s other love, compilations, head over to CSM News and listen to our Rebel Music inspired mixtape.
