Join us for a chilled evening gathering with dancing, conversation, Caribbean food, and good vibes
Valerie Ebuwa and Renée Bellamy host a relaxed space for artists to make new connections, and talk about what we each are looking for from an artistic community. Then they’ll crank the music up for a dance to a playlist of Beyoncé and Solange.
With free Caribbean food from our Roman Road neighbours Patty Heaven, and a donation bar. Bring your questions, moves, and an appetite!
This gathering is specifically for community-building amongst black & brown artists, and those who experience racism*. We also have an evening specifically for disabled and neurodivergent artists, and an evening open to all artists.
* A note on language
We acknowledge it is impossible for language to account for the diversity of experiences by which people are racialised, so we also hold space for other terms, including Global Majority, person of colour, BPOC etc.
Our choices were based on the understanding that racial dynamics and white supremacy are fundamentally underpinned by colourism and therefore we want our language to prioritise the people who are at the sharpest end of this system of oppression, namely black people and brown people.
See more on our community’s commitments to antiracism in our Artist Community Culture Document.
