shado presents: Build Love, Break Walls

Bermondsey Project
Space
183 – 185 Bermondsey Street,
London
SE1 3UW

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.
