GOLDFISH BOWL

Goldfish Bowl is a collaboration between The Paper Birds and Caleb Femi. With live music from DJ / music producer Lex Amor and illustrations by Olivia Twist, Goldfish Bowl is based on the life & works of Young People’s Laureate for London Caleb Femi, and interrogates the many small, but defining moments that make up a life.
