About this event

A meetup with testimonials, Q&A, and a Discuss & Exchange session open to everyone interested in the intersection between art & society.

How can we queer digital space? During lockdown, public spaces once reclaimed by LGBTQIA+ community have been inaccessible. How does this impact queer art activism rooted in performance and direct action? What does a digital Pride look like? How can we imagine drag under lockdown? Join us to reclaim a piece of this space in our virtual queer bar! Come for the drag, stay for virtual Pride initiatives and share your own queer social art lockdown experiences.

Hear from poet, actor and co-founder of Queer Heritage Forum Myla Corvidae, conveyor of Queer History Warwick and contributor to QHF’s first Digital Pride Hannah Ayres and many others in this virtual queer bar meetup hosted by freelance educator, curator and drag king Claire Mead.

Other Social Art Network London Meetups

SAN LDN will be presenting online meetups every 3rd Wednesday of the month 6pm to 8pm from June to December 2020. Each session will be hosted by an artist or curator dedicated to socially engaged practice with guest speakers sharing insight into the ongoing question we ask ourselves: what does it mean to be making art through social engagement art right now?

Living and working during a pandemic in the digital age is challenging the neoliberal notions of time and productivity. Mutual aid networks springing up across the country are demonstrating the need and ability of communities to self-organise. Amidst this, artists who work directly with communities, often in precarious sites and with vulnerable groups are the cultural key workers who can help us make sense of the times we are living in.

These meetups are an invitation to come together and collectively work through what we are doing, why we are doing it and how we are working and living during and after the Covd-19 emergency.
