BATTERSEA ARTS CENTRE & BACKBONE
1 APRIL - 14 APRIL
For the first time in Backbone’s history we are taking a delegation of young artists to present work internationally. In April 2019 a group of 10 Backbone artists and arts workers will be immersed in the Homegrown Festival: Occupy at Battersea Arts Centre in London.
As the UK faces an uncertain future, Homegrown Festival: Occupy gives a platform to rethink it from a fresh, internationalist perspective. Together underrepresented communities, collectives, entrepreneurs, young artists and activists occupy all corners of Battersea Arts Centre for a whole month. Gig theatre, live games, virtual experiences, rap, poetry and installations collide as old certainties are overturned and new possibilities imagined.
