Decolonise Festival 2018

22 - 25 June 2018

DIY Space for London, 96-108 Ormside St. SE15 1TF.

We will celebrate all the brilliant punx descended (through one or both parents) from the original inhabitants of Africa, the Caribbean, Asia, the Middle East, Latin America, Australasia, North America, and the islands of the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Ocean.
As we do this, we are rewriting the rules and challenging those labels. We are DIY Diaspora Punx.
We are reasserting our place in punk and want to showcase the amazing, creative and talented contributions punx of colour have made to the punk scene since its inception.
We are loud and proud and demand the space we deserve.
We are uncompromising and strong and will dismantle the white supremacy and patriarchy that infests the punk scene.
We will talk about racism but not in a way that centres whiteness or prioritises the feelings of white people. No white tears.
We are truly putting the threat back into punk again.
We will decolonise punk and make it a space for our siblings.
We will not tolerate racism, ageism, sexism, transphobia, classism, ableism, homophobia or fatphobia.
This is a celebratory event. White allies are welcome but remember this event will focus on people of colour.
Decolonising our past to decolonise our future.
