SPEAK Artists 'n' Activists Collective

The SPEAK Artists 'n' Activists Collective runs smaller and experimental nights to give new artists a supportive space.

The SPEAK Artists 'n' Activists Collective is a sub-label which supports the more experimental artists producing spoken word and other niche conscious music. We sometimes do smaller chill events called the Re:creation lounge - look out for these.

SPEAK Angels

SPEAK angels do community performance, art, dance and spread the heavenly love at SPEAK events, conscious club nights and national protests. Look out for the heavenly hosts at other events and come and give us a greeting of our own. We give quotes of inspiration to keep up the spirits of activists in the struggle.

 

SPEAK angels are also available to visit other parties and conscious events. Send us an e-mail if you would like the angels to come to your event or if you would like the dancing angels to give you a visitation. Check out our angel's profiles here.

The SPEAK Artists 'n' Activists Collective also practice the art of facilitating the drawing of creativity out of others. We seek to be an alternative to the, sometimes individualistic nature of the arts. Real art is about community and the art of a whole movement, not just the art of an individual. We don’t see a division between performer and observer.  We are all performers and we all have something to receive. It is about us being free to find our own uniquely creative voice. The most inspirational spaces seem to be small-scale  campfires and lounges rather than big gatherings. In smaller spaces we can share more and have a better quality of community, interaction and sharing. We see part of our role as challenging the power dynamic that can emerge in hierarchy between the ‘performer’ and the passive audience.

SPEAK has been a key partner and organiser of rooms, meditation spaces and campaign stalls at Luminopolis/Synergy. Watch the video documentary below about the exciting conscious club project:
