SHIFT kicks off with a set from talented DJ and radio host A.G. the DJ whose origins are firmly rooted in UK Grime. Join one of Radar Radio’s most fearsome selectors, self-taught DJ, model and presenter Snoochie Shy for a special set as she takes over the UK underground music scene one step at a time. Raising the bar for female rappers, catch special guest artist Nadia Rose’s headline performance, bringing her magic and rhymes to the historic Room 1840. Relax with Brixton-based House of Pharaohs collective and hear them share their life stories in a Q+A followed by a special live performance.

Drop in to a 3D animation workshop with digital animator Jack Sachs and look out for a special new work presenting his take on Tate Britain. Let the Tate Collection inspire you to dress as your favourite comic book heroes in a cosplay workshop and have a live digital portrait created by New York-based Drawing Booth. Join a workshop connecting music, art and imagination in an immersive landscape imagined by musician and illustrator Jerkcurb.

Take part in a conversation with gal-dem, a vibrant and creative online magazine written by women of colour, who host a talk discussing representations of women of colour in music and the arts, featuring Tate Collective London and A.G.the DJ.  Plus, back by popular demand, badge-making!
