The Boileroom is pleased to announce a programme of live-streamed events in the week leading up to this year’s International Womxn’s Day!               

3rd March – 6th March 2021

Join us for an exciting array of in house, live-streamed events in celebration of this year’s theme ‘Choose to Challenge’. We are proud to be collaborating with an array of incredible womxn to raise awareness and voices in a series of in-depth discussion panels, live performances and more!

What better way to kick everything off on Wednesday than a collaboration with our good friend Erika who will be hosting an empowering Creative Courage Circle with three other inspirational womxn artists: Emma, Emily-Anne and Boileroom’s very own Lydia Stockbridge. Erika’s Creative Courage Circles are a monthly space where each month she and 3 other creatives showcase work in various stages, new songs, work in progress, old familiars and we get to hear poems, books, songs in the making and hear a little about the process. 

On Thursday evening dynamic duo Dani Ran and Grace Goslin who make up The Femme Collective – a London based queer-led feminist media outlet, dedicated to increasing gender equality in the music industry! Dani and Grace will be speaking with The Thirstea Podcast – co-hosted by publicist and freelance music journalist Jasleen Dhindsa who has interviewed the likes of Arlo Parks, Korn, All Time Low to name a few! Joining Jasleen to is Line of Best Fit features editor and freelance journalist Tyler Damara Kelly.

Friday brings us another discussion panel – we’ll be joining Lesley-Anne O’Brien, Nuha Ruby Ra and Dr Ruth Pearce – three womxn with three different experiences of what it means to be a womxn in music. We are also so excited to end another inspiring day with a powerhouse performance from avant-punk queen Nuha Ruby Ra, on the evening of her release of debut EP ‘How To Move’. 

To finish off an insightful series celebrating womxn and shedding light on important experiences on Saturday 4 Walls Live are curating an evening of inspirational sounds with co-host, journalist and activist Lucy McCourt. 4 Walls Live are an exciting and innovating virtual hub dedicated to keeping the live music community connected. Their show will Include performances from Guildford’s own Annabel Allum, and more.

Art@Clyde&Co – the latest exhibition (Well some of it!)

We had to cancel the Private Viewing but felt quite sorry that our artists would not get the the exposure and critical appraisal their works deserve.  So … here is a sample to enjoy.

Just click on any image and view the slide show.

Best wishes from Guildford Arts – and stay safe,

Coronavirus Emergency:

It is with regret that we have curtailed most of our activities in line with government directives. In particular, this year’s Summer Exhibition (Yvonne Arnaud Art) has been cancelled. We are sorry not to be able to bring to you all the exciting works we had found and share with you a celebration of a quarter of a century of art! But we wish you all a safe and healthy summer and look forward to welcoming you in 2021.

Any other arts events referenced will have conditions as required by government guidelines!

Keep safe,

Guildford Arts
