What is the BBZ?
We are an ever-evolving curatorial & creative production collective born, raised and based in South East London with roots in nightlife and clubbing culture. Prioritizing the experiences of queer womxn, trans folk and non-binary people of color in all aspects of our work, we provide physical and online platforms for this specific community. We work to democratize access to public institutions and challenge institutionalized behaviors to diversify. We explore experiential practices with interactive installations, sound, poetry, archive, celebratory communion, photography, group shows, film and more. Organized by a stand out collective of seven queer black artists and headed by co-founders Tia Simon-Campbell and Naeem Davis.
