The History Bois at ONCA Barge: Drag and Queer history creative workshops
  • Brighton Fringe

POLITICAL DRAG WORKSHOP - 24/06, 2.30: Creating art inciting change & incorporating non-Western techniques, Leah Kirby/CYRO explores socio-economic & political issues through non-traditional formats. In this ONLINE workshop, they dissect their practice & techniques for building drag performance around the black trans experience: How to consider mental care when delving into art that centres honouring your anger & voicing underrepresented narratives through queer art? This workshop allows participants to begin making political drag through their own lens. Bring something to use as stimulus - an object, material, picture... something with significance to you. You'll be building a piece with CYRO there to support & mentor. This is about letting go of judgement & allowing your experience & voice to come through in your art. QTBIPOC-led event, QTBIPOC-identifying folk especially encouraged to apply. BSL-interpreted. MEETING THE UNRULY DEAD - 25/06, 3pm: This ONLINE workshop run by poet, drag king & artist SL Grange is for folks wanting to connect with Queer tr/ancestors. Using writing, drawing & performative processes, well create our own rituals & art to uncover, honour & meet lost queer heroes. All art practices at all levels of experience welcome. Captioned, with integrated audio-description.SHOW THYSELF! 26/06, 2.30: Multi-disciplinary artists SL Grange & E.M. Parry lead an IN-PERSON workshop exploring historically-inspired queer self-fashioning.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.
