On 23 – 27 April, re_use will aim to act as a catalyst for cross-cultural engagement in London for artists from marginalised communities, creating a space for them to explore intersectional social systems (race, gender, class and ethnicity) that exist within their respective communities as well as their peers.
Entitled Haramacy, the inaugural re_use program in London will focus on engaging with Middle Eastern and South Asian artists with the aim of creating a framework for them to collaborate and create.
Haramacy will be comprised of a five-day multi-arts program hosted at the Albany. UK-based Middle Eastern and South Asian artists will partake in a four-day collaborative residency to explore the complexities of diasporic experience. On the final day, artists will present their works through a one night festival of storytelling, talks, live music and audio-visual performance.
re_use was initially conceived in Kuwait as an annual happening to promote eco-friendly living through art. It has since evolved into a traveling, multi-arts program that responds to pressing issues within cities.
Doors for this event are at 7pm and you are welcome to move in and out of the space until end of final performance at 2am.
