A month of dance, film, participation, workshops, performances, interventions, creative conversations, screenings and happenings leading to the creation of a participatory live dance film. Local Artists and community activists and anyone else who wants to be involved making a musical for Hackney, as soul restoration and last ditch lateral response to the intense gentrification of the area that lost us our local café, the west Indian fish and veg shop and finally our own homes and work spaces; inverse-propaganda against consistent denigration of the vitality and value of multi-social-culturalism and community.
Encounters with Remote Environments & Cultures.
La Wayaka Currrent was founded in 2015 and has since grown to provide an essential link for artists to remote nature and cultures. Our work manifests in arts & cultural projects, residence and research projects at multiple locations, collaborations, interdisciplinary works and international exhibitions.
Tangle is South West England’s African Caribbean Theatre Company. We celebrate the work of artists of African, Caribbean and more than 50 other heritages. Our work integrates, asserts and celebrates their brilliant contribution to UK theatre, particularly in rural areas where there is little inter-cultural interface.
Mint Works is hosting a month program of events and exhibitions that investigate different perspectives to re-evaluate the positions of Guest and Host, and challenge our common perceptions of them, exploring how we offer ourselves or receive the other, from the intimate to the public realm.
Manifesting the Unseen seeks to remove barriers and reveal hidden truths through creating a discursive space to subvert the ‘Orientalist gaze’ and experience the unique artistic language of Islamic art and its modern cultural expression. Bringing together an international group of emerging Muslim women artists the exhibition invites the viewer to see the unseen, challenging their perceptions of Islam and Muslim women.
AltMFA are excited to welcome artist Hamish MacPherson to give an interactive talk at Guest Projects, as part of our a-n supported programme on The Future.
