Meet Me in the Marshes

Hackney Marshes, London | 1st August, 6pm BST

Meet Me in the Marshes will be a little reconnaissance and rendezvous with our friends and collaborators while the weather is hot and while we’re young.

Liquid will provide drinks and edibles inspired by wetlands and foraged from the toxic waste of the surrounding marshes, with performances and readings by BabetteD Mortimer, Foivos Dousos, Jacques Baumgartner and Riana Patel.

We’ll be meeting in the place known as ‘the Hackney beaches’ in the Hackney Marshes at 6pm on Saturday August 1st.

We will send everyone an exact pin drop on the WhatsApp group we’ve set up for the event. If you would like to attend the event please reply to this newsletter with your name and phone number.

Things that make a picnic pleasant to you. The weather forecast says it’ll be 23 degrees and partially sunny.

Considering the sickly times we’re living in, please bring facemasks and hand sanitiser and be conscious that some people may have differing levels of comfort and concern around Covid 19. Some may not want to be touched. This is a small outdoor event so we hope to mitigate the risk.

See you Saturday.

Roisin, Iarlaith & Rosa

Accountability in the age of digital intimacy

Raven Row, London | 5th March, 7–9pm

Interactions that lead to sexual encounters have been largely removed from the public spheres of clubs and bars and now play out in our inboxes and DMs. What once had to pass under the scrutiny of others, now takes place behind the privacy and semi secrecy of a lit screen. When there are no real-life repercussions to our actions does it make us behave quote unquote worse? And if we are to be made accountable for our actions, at what point does this become shaming?

Liquid will be inviting Instagram phenomenon Beam Me Up Softboi, intimacy newsletter Close, and poet Jacques Baumgartner to explore questions about accountability, ethics, and online intimacy through read-ins, debate, and performance.

Admission is free but there is a suggested £5 donation.

This is the first of 5 upcoming events taking place in Raven Row, Set, and Tate.

Liquid explores expressions of intimacy in the private and public realms, in our digital and offline lives.
