DROP IN AND SHARE YOUR STORY BETWEEN 1-5pm
An artistic and community rooted response to anti social behaviour faced by LGBTQ people on the streets of Brighton & Hove, the safety map will sit in the Marlborough Theatre 30th April – 2nd May and aims to highlight the huge concern of unreported crime in the community. It will be led by lead by queer cultural innovators Pink Fringe and acclaimed artists Rosana Cade and Kate Shields. Participants will be invited to share their experiences in Brighton & Hove, and over the three days the safety map will evolve into a representation of LGBTQ safety in the city.
Kate Shields is a multi-disciplinary artist, currently based in Brighton and studying Fine Art. With a background in life drawing and portraiture, her work is mostly focused on the figure, the body, and how it relates to gender, sexuality, as well as perceptions of beauty, the self and others.
Rosana Cade is a performance maker and artistic organiser based in Scotland. Whilst the form of her performance work varies, emerging in relation to the specific process or context in which it exists, it is firmly rooted in a queer discourse and straddles live art and activism.
