OUR HOUSE is an East London Dance programme which hands over creative control of our programming to independent artists and collectives for a week at a time, to make the decisions within our artistic offer and curate activity at our home, the Talent House.
SENSORIA: OUR HOUSE (Friday 22 to Sunday 24 March 2024)
For their OUR HOUSE takeover Sensoria is curating three days of activity at the Talent House that prioritise artistic slowness, sustainability and de-growth.

WE ARE SENSORIA
We’re building radical accessibility and infrastructures of care into art spaces prioritising slowness, sustainability and de-growth in the curation of our events.
Slowing down is a radical act in today’s society. ‘Slowness’ in practice breaks down ableist standards, and supports artists to care for themselves and have autonomy over their practice. ‘Sustainability’ looks like embedding collective care within our practices, spaces and experiences in the disabled community and wider society. Normalising care for ourselves and for our communities. De-growth explores how to grow outside capitalist frameworks through collective action, finding innovative ways of fundraising and support.
Our work centres around co-creation and collaboration with the disabled community, creating safe spaces in the arts. For the first OUR HOUSE event we are so happy to hold this space and invite you to join us:
