Highlighting under the radar arts and culture in Birmingham, UK


SHOUT, Birmingham’s festival of queer culture launches today and runs until 23 November. The programme has some great events and happenings.

Highlights include:

  •  The Uncontrollability Of Love, stunning photographs by Jak Flash and featuring people from the local LGBT community as models. The photographs are based on the work of Edward Burne-Jones. The large format pictures will be displayed around Hurst Street and other festival venues during November.
  • Qasim Riza Shaheen‘s residency at the mac with a series of video installations, performances exploring ‘the dance disciple, cinema icons and the object of one’s affection’.
  • The Irrepressibles – ‘Pop-meets-art’ project. ‘A dark, mirrored fantasy inside which the 10-piece performance orchestra play and move like an extraordinary flock of marionettes.’ Sounds like one not to be missed!
