Join the Pride Parade in a fabulous costume

By 7th June 2016 No Comments

After last years ROARing animalistic success, Brighton Pride have asked andwhatarts back to inject some crazy artistry into this years Parade.

Now is your chance to get involved and explore ideas of masculinity and femininity through costume and language; why don’t you get involved courtesy of a new project by andwhatarts and costumier extraordinaire Mandinga Arts?

We don’t want to give too much away but we all know that sticks and stones can break your bones as we embrace out inner pansy and fruitiness!

Proud Interventions II, funded by Arts Council England (so you know its good!) is a stylised costume based processional work that will be brought to life by you  – gay, straight, lesbian, trans, bi – we don’t care, because this is a work about community.

As a volunteer you will receive 1.5 days (of fun) training with andwhatarts and Mandinga arts to perform in one of Europe’s best Pride Parades. You will also get FREE entrance to the Pride Festival in Preston Park and above all you will be part of something really special, get to wear amazing, bespoke and cheeky costumes designed by Mandinga and contribute to a project that injects high quality art and political motifs into the parade. It will be an amazing (and free) experience!

We need around 40 committed volunteers so tell your friends and family; come in groups or on your own – see the Volunteer section of the Pride website for more details.

No experience necessary just a willingness to get involved, dress up and have great fun.

Volunteers who take part will receive a free pass for the Pride festival on Preston park.
