LGBTQI nightlife at CAMP-er-VAN, Peckham Festival

Start: Sep 10, 2016 01:00 PM
End: Sep 10, 2016 02:30 PM

Location: Reclaimed Rye @ Copeland Park, 133 Copeland Road, London SE15 3SN


UCL Urban Laboratory will be participating in Peckham Festival by leading a public conversation on LGBTQI nightlife spaces at the CAMP-er-VAN on Saturday 10 September.

Ongoing research at the UCL Urban Laboratory is recording nightlife spaces that are important to London’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Intersex (LGBTQI) communities. This is led by Dr Ben Campkin, with Laura Marshall (UCL Geography). At CAMP-er-VAN as part of Peckham Festival, Ben and Laura will present some of the findings from the research, a collaboration with Raze Collective and Queer Spaces Network, inviting audience contributions. They will also interview a number of experts from different scenes including the DJ, producer and visual artist JEFFREY HINTON; cultural producer, activist, writer, educator and drummer CHARDINE TAYLOR-STONE; and CAMP-er-VAN's creator, Bartlett School of Architecture graduate and filmmaker SAMUEL DOUEK. This will be followed by the screening of a short film, Ladies, gentlemen and beautiful wotevers! directed by Samuel.

Inspired by London’s queer spaces, the CAMP-er-VAN is a transportable performance and community caravan that can be used for shows, workshops and events. Showcasing over 20 performances, from burlesque to spoken word, film screenings and audience participation events, the CAMP-er-VAN will provide a full day of free entertainment and support for the local community.
