Make the Change

There is something about September that incites newness and renewal – what better time to come and Make the Change with us!

Join us as we celebrate the work we’ve done so far in empowering artists from marginalised identities and reflect on how to be a better ally to those artists. 

Take part in open and active discussions, or just listen and learn. Enjoy music and food while we present art, performances, and films from the artists we’ve proudly commissioned. Be part of a supportive community, learn from marginalised artists, contribute to positive change, and gain insights into allyship and intersectionality.

Alongside the discussion, there will be a facilitated activity with visual and written prompts relating to the discussion topics, for people to respond in an alternative way. 

The sharing will be concluded with a freestyle performance from hip-hop MC and spoken word poet, Testament
