183 – 185 Bermondsey Street,
11th to 22nd February 2020
shado is hosting a 2-week residency between 11th – 22nd February at Bermondsey Project Space in celebration of LGBTQI+ month.
This will include:
– A photography exhibition curated by shado which spotlights and celebrates
London-based LGBTQI+ changemakers
– Works by painter Sola Olulode and photographer Alia Romagnoli
– A series of posters by shado illustrators along the theme ‘Build Love, Break Walls.’
– An exhibition by Help Refugees celebrating their projects around Europe – including
Say It Loud Club, a community support group for LGBTQI+ refugees and asylum
seekers in the UK.
This 2-week residency is an exciting opportunity to celebrate and combine the work of organisations working on the ground and artists using their work as a tool for advocacy. We are committed to using the space to include and involve local organisations to bring these networks together.
Alongside the exhibition, we have curated a programme of events with local organisations including creative writing workshops, spoken word evenings and book clubs all celebrating the diverse contributions of London’s LGBTQI+ community.
The residency will culminate in a panel discussion with leading lawyers from Mishcon De Reya working in the realm of sexual and gender asylum; Adam Kashmiry, a trans man from Egypt who successfully sought gender asylum in the UK; and Aloysius Ssali, Ugandan gay activist and founder of Say It Loud Club.
