With 50% of ticket sales being donated to Muslim Youth Helpline, we wanted to further give back to one of the many diverse communities that we wish to represent on our platform.

Live Art Club
monthly open platform
“Do you have part of a new idea, an experiment in working with an audience, a way of moving your body, a series of sounds you’re excited by, an unexpected activation of the space, an interruption of tradition, guttural words that want to explode out of you, a re-performance of a forgotten idea or anything else that might look/feel/taste like Live Art?

We want to see it! Share what you’ve been working on with us at our next event on May 1st.” 

Live Art Club is a monthly open platform for performance art, taking place on the 1st of the month at VSSL. It is free to attend and free to participate in.
