About this event

Sufra is a charity working to address both the causes and consequences of impoverishment in the community. There will be food, music and creative activities for children and families facilitated by A’lshah Waheed. Come and see and give feedback on a proposal for a newly commissioned artwork for St Raphael’s Edible Garden, developed in dialogue with staff members from Sufra and residents of St Raph’s Estate.

About Brent Biennial 2022 & Metroland Cultures

The second edition of the Brent Biennial, In the House of my Love, brings together artists and community groups whose work explores the many meanings of homemaking. This exhibition asks how, and why, the act of making home can be a form of resistance and survival within the context of hostile environments—including those of racism, homophobia, ableism, climate catastrophe and political austerity.

Drawing its title from a line in poet Ezra Green’s A Poem to the Nationalist Marcher (For the Queer People of Warsaw), In the House of my Love takes as a point of departure the various histories and legacies of migration that have made Brent the second most ethnically diverse borough in London, and a local authority with one of the highest numbers of first-generation migrants in the country.

The Brent Biennial is delivered by Metroland Cultures. Our mission is to build, share and support art and culture in Brent: supporting communities to amplify ongoing stories of Brent life, and working with artists to tell new stories as they come into form. Our work sits at the intersection of art and community, and we are committed to testing new approaches that centre partnerships, strategies and approaches for community and artist collaboration. 

Brent Biennial 2022: In the House of my Love is open and free for all to visit every Thursday – Sunday, 12 – 6pm between 8 July - 11 September.
