🌈 50% of the price you pay for the calendar will be donated to The Outside Project, the UK’s first LGBTIQ+ Crisis/Homeless Shelter and Community Centre:
“We are LGBTIQ+ colleagues, friends & activists who work in the Homeless sector & have lived experience of homelessness & the unique, complex issues our community face. We volunteered to launch the UK’s first LGBTIQ+ Crisis/Homeless Shelter & Community Centre. We launched publicly at London Pride 2017, campaigning alongside the passionate & talented LGBTIQ+ community of activists & artists.”
Hosted by parasitologist Yasmine Kumordzi, and performer RJ Lloyd, this chat show features microbial sketches, interviews, and a live Q&A.
Endosymbiotic Love Calendar brings performance artists & scientists working together to embody a microorganism for every month of 2021. This art + science collaboration delves into the (renewed public awareness of the) microbial world and the fragile interdependence of our coexistence on this planet.
Without exploiting the COVID-19 situation, but sensitively and safely working in its context, we intend to bring these worlds together; pairing the vital importance of microbiological research with feminist and queer perspectives to help share biological knowledge in an innovative and meaningful way. But what does dressing up as a microorganism have to do with climate change? Here’s a conversation between Tammy Reynolds (performance artist), Yasmine Kumordzi (microbiologist) and myself (artist) about how we think our calendar relates to this issue.
