'Queer Brown Stories' Launching This Thursday

Connecting Camley Street Installation 4

We are delighted to launch our next Connecting Camley Street artwork installation - Queer Brown Stories with the incredible Dhaga collective.

Queer Brown Stories is an opportunity for Queer & Trans South Asian folx who live/work in Camden to be part of a collaborative mural for the Camley Street underpass. The outputs of both workshops will inspire and inform the artwork on the Camley Street underpass, celebrating Queer Brown Stories of Camden.

The Connecting Camley Street artwork programme is an initiative run by Camden Council that aims for local people to have a genuine voice over the future of Camley Street. Camley Street is changing and will become a highly sustainable new neighbourhood including genuinely affordable homes, improved business space and job opportunities, underpinned by a bold vision for meaningful and imaginative placemaking. A series of artworks by different local communities will be hosted in this underpass gallery space over the coming years.

Participants are invited to take part in a Freewriting and Collage workshop alongside a film screening of ‘Discovering Kali’ celebrating the legendary Club Kali hosted by the Naz and Matt Foundation. The film screening is open to wider audiences beyond Camden as well and there will be delicious food by the HENNA Asian Women’s Group with the Bengali Women’s Forum. HENNA Asian Women’s Group will also be available throughout the day providing support on voter registration.

Both events are now live on Eventbrite!
