Sue Frumin, All Tomorrows Parties Party host and Hackney based artist, said:
“Hackney, is the creative beating heart of London, in a similar way to the Factory in the 60’s and 70’s. It is very exciting to concentrate that wonderful artistic energy and bring this eclectic community together using the influence of Andy Warhol!”
The party will be a chance for Factory fans to dress to impress in their own classy outfits representing the “studio vibes of New York to the streets of Hackney”. The swankiest dressed will win 15 minutes of fame!
For those who like to draw or are feeling creative, there will be an innovative corner with art materials for you to paint and colour your way through - on a canvas! There’s also a poetry station in honour of Valerie Solanas’ celestial and provocative contribution to Feminism, “The Scum Manifesto”.
Alex, the Farr School of Dancing Manager, said:
“We are proud to host this happening for the borough’s Hackney Pride 365 festival. As an LGBTQI+ friendly venue, we are excited to be transformed into our wildest Warholian fantasy – and have an arty party that brings our community together no matter what walk of life, background, sexuality or gender. So make sure you come along and get creative!”
