Collide: An evening of queer live art & performance

Join us at Stanley Arts as we transform the building, filling the space with queer art. 10 artists – performers, poets, filmmakers, DJs, visual artists & plenty in between – will share new pieces of work in this experimental, building wide takeover!

 

This is an evening like no other, a mix of installation art, performance and party! There will also be an opportunity to preview Bold Mellon’s Queer Joy Exhibition in the Stanley Arts Gallery Space. Commissioned works by (artists in a-z order): Amani, anOmaly, Bilan Suliman, Danny Bailey & Alizée Ndiaye, Dot Alma, Duncan Disorderly, June Lam, Lateisha Davine Lovelace-Hanson, Orion Isaacs & Tanaka Fuego.

Collide is a project  that supports 10 LGBTQ+ artists with money, space, time & resources to actualise their next big idea. A collaboration between Raze Collective & Stanley Arts, Collide is part of the London Borough of Culture programme & it reflects a mission shared by both organisations – to give more opportunities to LGBTQ+ artists.

Spaces are limited due to the unique nature of the event, please do book ahead to avoid disappointment!
