May’s Herland will be curated and hosted by Collect:if – the GWL based network for Women of Colour creatives.

Herland curated by Collect:if, Friday 5th May, 7pm to 10pm

Collect:if members from across Scotland are collaborating to bring together a truly ground-breaking evening of arts and cutting edge performances by women working across an array of genres. This promises to be a landmark evening when Women of Colour take to the stage, call the shots and showcase some of the best in performance, music, and food, blended with the welcoming, uplifting Herland flavour. Alongside the performances, Fusion Bites and Soul Food Sisters will be providing delicious food and there’ll also be a cash bar selling alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.

Performers on the night include:

Sim Bajwa, Edinburgh based writer and contributer to Nasty Women

Sister, a collective who explore the experiences and challenges faced by mixed race Scottish women (follow them here and here)

Clan Macondo, a group who promote Latin American and AfroCaribbean culture through music and dance

The talented flautists Diljeet Bhachu and Hannah Lee

Suria Tei (Chiew-Siah Tei), author of ‘The Mouse Deer Kingdom’ and ‘Little Hut of Leaping Fishes’

Nags Kamel, visual artist and filmmaker

MC: Sim Bajwa

Art: Hannah Moitt


Dress code: Cultural dress encouraged. Show us who you are and how you define yourself.

Get here before the performances begin and you can get our horoscope read by Clan Macondo! Everyone is welcome!
