23 February 23 @ 18:30 - 21:30


The core idea of the showcase is to be able to put on something that you wish you could do in your home country.

Fascism and conservative governments in the subcontinent, extremist groups and conservative masses, have made expression through art difficult and unsafe. Oftentimes, it’s not just the criticism that gets censored, but also stories of queer joy, female sexuality and pleasure.

This showcase is a platform to be as radical, experimental and political with their art and mediums that the artists wish to be, drawing from their lived experiences as a South Asian person.

The programme will be a mixture of visual and performing artists. Each performance pieces will be under 30 minutes.

About  £brown

Brown pounds is the perceived purchasing power of British asian/black communities, that a lot of advertisers, companies and agencies tap on. Like any other capitalistic model, it’s a cycle of working to earn and purchase, leading to the commodification of brown identities and cashing on brown labour to sell, well, chai tea latte.

 £brown is a satirical commentary on the same. It is an attempt to spend brown pounds on brown artists. (Hear that, prime minister?)
