You Can Sit With Us

Our experience of home can be complicated, especially as intersectional folks who are navigating multiple identities. You Can Sit With Us is an exhibition where Artists and Designers share their work in response to home through a South Asian and LGBTQIA+ lens.

 

From the Queer South Asian house parties of the 90s to Club Kali - home was redefined. We weren’t celebrated or accepted in mainstream queer spaces, many folks felt out of place. Any spaces that did exist in Camden and London, have declined or disappeared over the years, leaving many of us feeling disconnected and isolated.

 

We want to co-create a safer and affirming space to celebrate, love, mourn, grieve and make space to explore all of our Queer and South Asian identities in Camden and beyond. We welcome you into our home and invite you to participate in whatever way you feel comfortable.

19th July - 22nd August

‘Queer Brown Stories’, as heard on BBC Radio 6 is an initiative led by and for the Queer & Trans South Asian community in Camden. It is part of the Connecting Camley Street Artwork Programme and marks a significant step in the inclusive development of Camley Street. Curated by Dhaga, this project expresses the Queer & Trans South Asian Community’s experience and aspirations for the future of cities through creative community engagement.

Exploring social sustainability through the stories of the South Asian diaspora. 28 Artists and Designers from across the UK have come together to share their story in celebration of South Asian Heritage Month, through photography, mixed media, fashion, furniture, installation and more.

Diving deeper into the nuances, it is a journey of Introspection, Decolonisation, Fusion and Expansion, building awareness of intersectionality and sustainable practices that are deeply rooted in South Asian culture.
