Films, DJs and a garden party honouring Black activism.

Nairobi meets south-London on the banks of the Thames.

 

Kenyan multidisciplinary artists the Nest Collective are hosting a party, bringing Black sounds from the diaspora and intimate portraits of the lives of Black activists into a hidden palace in Deptford.

An all-day celebration, from 2pm to 11pm.

From 2-4pm:

The world premiere of the film, Feminine and the Foreign, followed by a Q&A with members of the Nest Collective.

Internationally renowned filmmakers, fashion designers, visual artists and DJs the Nest Collective have collaborated with activists and artists in London and Cape Town all the way from their home in Nairobi, Kenya, to create a series of brief, evocative documentaries. Screening in the garden of Shipwright, these are intimate profiles of people who have pushed back against the forces that oppress and violate minority communities worldwide, with a focus on feminist, queer and migrant rights. The Feminine and the Foreign elicits memory, tenderness, and solidarity through evocative and expressive narration and visuals.

From 4pm – 10pm:

Party on the banks of the Thames fuelled by delicious food and cocktails from local Black-owned businesses. The garden of Shipwright will be brought to life by the Nest and a line-up of London DJs, including Deptford-based AAJA Radio, to soundtrack the afternoon. Don’t miss happy hour from 4-5pm!

In collaboration with LOCAL.
