On 01st February 2018, we piloted our new community showcase format – the Shakaring. The space is an interactive, intimate sharing space, where youth artists perform new works developed over two intensive courses #HealingTheCuts and #MovementMedicine. Featuring poetry, film, song & music responding to and resisting issues affecting our youth and communities:

Youth Deaths, Knife deaths, Police Brutality, Gentrification etc.
We reimagine how to heal outside the hurt.

February’s Shakaring featured performances and art by: Tasnima Ahmed / Hajera Begum / Sky Caesar / Patrice Etienne / Promi Ferdousi / Shezara Francis / Amina Gichinga / Georgia Greenfield / Hajra Gulamrassul / Abdul Hasan / Farzana Khan / Kush / Grace Lee / Annick Météfia / Georgia Moona-Sam / Sai Murray / Jasmine Page / Orla Price / Dhelia Snoussi / Sabrina Stoute / Undleeb / Tiffany Webster / Dee Woods / Rose Ziaei / Rosamund Zipporah
