About the festival


Over four weeks, Homegrown Festival: Occupy invites young artists, collectives, entrepreneurs, activists and local communities to occupy Battersea Arts Centre during the period that the UK may exit the EU.


From gig theatre, live games and virtual experiences to opera, hip-hop, and installations, the festival is an opportunity for communities to come together and rethink our common future through young people's perspectives.


The line-up includes new shows by Conrad Murray and acclaimed teenage company Sounds Like Chaos as well as Looking For Love, a virtual experience by Fanshen and The Mission, a live game by Exit Productions.


The festival will also feature Contact Theatre Manchester, BAC Phoenix Award winner Amy Leon, dancer Akeim Toussaint Buck, Access All Areas, People Film Club, 20 Stories High, Australian company Backbone and many more.


Homegrown Festival: Occupy is curated by Saad-Eddine Said in association with Tarek Iskander as part of Up Next - a partnership between Artistic Directors of the Future, the Bush Theatre and Battersea Arts Centre, which hands the keys of two London theatres over to visionary artists of colour.
