Talk description

What is culture and who is it for? Who gets to decides what it is high and low art, or what qualifies as art rather than a party? Girl Gang discuss DIY culture, feminism and popular culture and their approach to none hierarchical artistic communities in their attempt to create events that have something for everyone at which everyone can be an artist.

The collective share some of their inspirations from riot grrrl to secret cinema and discuss the influence of teenage girls and bedroom culture on their artistic outlook and approach to accessibility.
