From 1987 to 1995, Euston was home to the Camden Lesbian Centre and Black Lesbian Group. So why have we never heard of it?! The Centre’s records are kept at The Glasgow Women’s Library - 555 km away.
60% of London’s queer spaces have closed in the past decade. Camden Borough’s free spaces - essential for marginalised groups as places to gather and share - have been decimated by fires, mandatory pricing and gates.
In a city where our histories are not saved and it is hard to meet our predecessors, archiving becomes political. GRILLS explores what ‘progress’ means, and asks what stories are we missing by being unable to gather freely?
GRILLS is a recipient of a Camden NoW! commission from Camden People's Theatre (funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation) and Old Diorama Arts Centre.
Thank you for allowing artists to take creative risks, the world needs it now more than ever.
