 Devil’s Dyke Network’s Queer Open Mic Online

28 August, 2021. FREE, tickets via Eventbrite
Facebook + Eventbrite

Do you love queer poems, stories, music, dancing and more? Would you like the chance to perform your own queer poems, stories, music, dancing and more?? Then come and join us – as audience member or performer – at Devil’s Dykes Queer Open Mic for Pride on Saturday 28 August 2021 on Zoom!

For this open mic, we’re inviting women (cis and trans), gender non-binary, and queer identified people of different origins and identities (who more often than not have difficult or complicated access to performing in other spaces) to perform live on Zoom.

You don’t have to have done anything like this before, or even consider yourself an artist – this is going to be a really warm and supportive event, and Devil’s Dyke Network actively encourages people to explore their queer creativity, whatever their previous experience.

So, whether you’re performing or cheering the artists on, grab your beverage of choice and come and chill with us online ? We look forward to seeing you at this online open mic. Share the queer joy !


 Devil’s Dyke Network’s Pleasure Garden Festival

Lighthouse, Brighton
25 October, 2019. FREE ALL DAY: 10 am – 10 pm 
Facebook event 1 + event 2.

Hey folks! Have you ever felt like you want to soak in all of the queer feminist art goodness and to chat to all of the brilliant peeps at the Devil’s Dyke Night event, but then you run out of time?… Well, we felt that too! How about we arrange a day-long hang (followed by a fab dance party afterwards) this October. Thanks to CHASE Feminist funding we got some resources to do so. We are thinking — let’s learn, move, eat, write, weave, draw, dance together, listen to some poetry of course, and get to know each other better! 

We came up with this cool line-up described on Facebook.
And you can download the programme here. But there might be some changes down the line, so please keep an eye on hour social media updates.

The spaces in some activities and classes are limited, and those would be allocated on first come first served basis on the day. However, if you’re travelling from afar, or have specific access needs, or would prefer to secure a place for any other reason – email ddnbookings@gmail.com with a line about what activities you are interested in (no pressure to share any other details with us).

link to FB event

At this particular planning event — open to everybody who has interest in organising, feminism, queer activism, and local community strengthening — we want to gather friends, comrades, colleagues, and siblings to reflect on our hopes, plans, and actions. As well as brief anybody interested in joining the organising collective on where we are at.

We want to have a non-academic discussion and hear people’s opinions on questions like this:

?? What is that “good thing” that we are all striving to do through community organising?
?? What should we collectively engage with?
?? What, do you feel, is not engaged with in the right way?
?? What does it mean (to you) to make spaces more accessible for communities in Brighton?
?? What are you missing in the local events/ scenes/ spaces?
?? How can this be done and how do we want to do it?
