EXODUS
 
15th July - 1 September
 

 
“Exodus”, from the Greek going out, is a project developed by Polish artist Kamil Tatara. This work by Tatara responds to the situation caused by the humanity’s crisis, analysing Europe's realities and takes an interesting focus from the Paul Gaugin quote: "Where do we come from? What we are? Where are we going?"

ORGANIC ALIBI + ANDREW SOUTER

Thursday 25th August 7.30pm
Organic Alibi / Andrew Souter 
Organic Alibi is a solo project of Alex Owen’s design. It’s a psychedelic, chilled and distorted fabrication of memories recalled from Alex's consciousness. His music is more like a personal archive that others can listen to and relate to. With high swirling falsettos and laid back rhythms you feel yourself getting lost in the sound and mind of Alex Owen and his Organic Alibi.

Supported by local Birmingham songwiter Andrew Souter:www.facebook.com/andrewsoutersongwriter

SPEED SISTERS + CINEMA PARTY - SCALARAMA FESTIVAL 

24th September 8pm
We are hosting Speed Sisters  film screening as a part of  Scalarama Fastival.
Scalarama is an annual Celebration of Cinema. It takes the form of a season of films, each one chosen by a different organisation or individual, in a variety of different venues.
 The Speed Sisters are the first all-woman race car driving team in the Middle East. Grabbing headlines and turning heads at improvised tracks across the West Bank, these five women have sped their way into the heart of the gritty, male-dominated Palestinian street car-racing scene. Weaving together their lives on and off the track, SPEED SISTERS takes you on a surprising journey into the drive to go further and faster than anyone thought you could.
