No one can persuade another to change. Each of us guards a gate of change that can only be opened from the inside. We cannot open the gate of another, either by argument or by emotional appeal.

But through the medium of music, voice, lights, effects, personal energy and performance, The Smink Project invites anyone to sample, to feel and experience the all encompassing high that emanates from a philosophy and paradigm of life that we were so lucky to stumble upon that long Monday night on West 3.

F.N.D. @ Loughborough Students Union, 9th November 2001
"In a good club, and even in most bad ones, the dancers are celebrating their youth, their energy, their sexuality. They are worshipping life through dance and music. Some worship with the heightened levels of perception that drugs bring; but most are carried away merely by the music and the people around them. 2 DJs, 3 CDJs, 1 Mixer, 1 SoundThe DJ is key to all this. By playing records in the right way the average DJ has a tremendous power to affect people's states of mind. A truly great DJ, just for a moment, can make a whole room fall in love."

It is this communal moment of togetherness that The Smink Project strives to deliver. The personal spine tingling, neck hair elevating euphoric moment that cannot be described in words, but merely in feeling. We work to provide an environment and an atmosphere that is a breeding ground for these emotions.
