HARAMACY

 
 

The inaugural Haramacy program was held in London in the Spring of 2019. Haramacy brought together Middle Eastern and South Asian artists from marginalised communities with the aim of creating a framework for them to collaborate and create.

Acting as a catalyst for cross-cultural engagement, Haramacy created a safe space for artists to explore intersectional social systems (race, gender, class and ethnicity) that exist within their communities as well as their peers.

Haramacy comprised of a five-day multi-arts program hosted at The Albany in Deptford, South East London as part of their ‘Rebels Season.’ Select UK-based took part in a four-day collaborative residency to explore the complexities of diasporic experience. On the final day, artists presented their works through a one-day festival of storytelling, talks, music and audio-visual performance in correlation with The Albany season’s theme which celebrates outsider narratives.
