Evolution 2020: Evolution Party

14 Feb 2020
Running time
180 minutes

Join us for an evening of poetry, live music DJs and dancing, to see the festival out in style.

Are you over boring dates, dating apps and Valentine’s Day chat?

In a collaboration with Young Shubbak, we bring you Other Love: A party that celebrates types of love that never get the spotlight: atypical love, platonic love, and self-love. Full of interactive activities, spoken word, live drawing, a band & DJ, it’s guaranteed to be a night to remember!

Shubbak is one of Europe’s largest festivals of contemporary Arab culture, bringing new and unexpected voices alongside established artists to audiences every two years. Young Shubbak are a new collective of 18-25 year old artists, curators, producers and creatives who programme multi-art form events to entertain, inspire, and promote inclusivity in the Arts.

Line-up includes:

Spoken word artists Tasneim Zyada and Sanah Ahsan
Live drawing by Alex Oliver
Live band The International Lovers
Disco funk with DJ Vid

Presented with additional support from The Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
