CAMPerVan (UK) is a multidisciplinary performance collective that use a modified campervan as a nomadic space for queer performance. The collective consists of performers Zoe Marden, Samuel Douek and Fiontán Bleau. The project was created as a response to the closing of many queer venues across London in recent years and provides free and accessible performance art, community workshops and film screenings to different locations, most recently touring European cities. https://queercampervan.tumblr.com

The programme will include performances, screenings, discussions and workshops and each event will leave a contribution in the space to form a gradually expanding archive.
