Fri 1 – Sun 3 May 2015
Venues Across South London

SHOW OF HANDS is a weekend of free talks, performances, screenings and workshops across south London for young people to come together and voice their opinions about politics today.

Programmed by young people with contributions from artists, politicians, musicians, poets and writers, SHOW OF HANDS aims to encourage young people to engage with the General Election on 7 May 2015, whilst exploring alternatives to the current political system.

Vote Art: Art of Protest
Friday 1 May, 6 – 9pm
Join us in Peckham Platform for an evening of discussion and banner making in a quest to explore the social, political and personal values that are most important to you. Meet artist and long time collaborator of Jemery Deller, Ed Hall and be inspired by his alternative history of London as seen through his trade union banners since 1984. Materials, music and refreshments provided!

Throughout the weekend visit Peckham Platform to create your own political slogans and screen-print or paint them onto placards or t-shirts.

SHOW OF HANDS is initiated by the South London Gallery in collaboration with Arcadia Missa, Black Cultural Archives, CGP London, Camberwell College of Arts, Hannah Barry Gallery and Peckham Platform.

Follow the discussion on Twitter with hashtag #showofhands15 or visit the Facebook page page for more information.
