SHOW OF HANDS was a weekend of free talks, performances, screenings and workshops across south London for young people to come together and voice their opinions about politics today.

Programmed by young people, with contributions from artists, politicians, musicians, poets and writers, SHOW OF HANDS aimed to encourage young people to engage with the General Election on 7 May 2015, whilst exploring alternatives to the current political system.

SLG events included a spoken word event POLITICÆL PÆRTY, organised in collaboration with The A & The E, during which poets Jemima Foxtrot, Adam Kammerling, James Massiah, Slam The Poet and Allan Struthers performed new work that responded to the political issues affecting young people in the lead up to the General Election.

On the final day of SHOW OF HANDS the SLG hosted Vote of Confidence, a discussion chaired by the South London Gallery and Black Cultural Archives’ Youth Boards to explore young people’s relationship to politics. Speakers included Seyi Akiwowo, Newham Labour Councillor; Essma Bechkoum, Community Engagement Officer at Bite the Ballot, a party-neutral movement to empower young voters; artists DashNDem; Katie Ghose, Chief Executive, Electoral Reform Society; and Morgan Quaintance, writer, musician, broadcaster and curator. Listen to audio of the discussion here.

In the lead up to the project the SLG's Youth Forum, the Art Assassins, collaborated with artists DashNDem and a David Cameron look-alike to create their own independent political broadcast.

SHOW OF HANDS was initiated by the South London Gallery in collaboration with Arcadia Missa, Black Cultural Archives, CGP London, Camberwell College of Arts, Hannah Barry Gallery and Peckham Platform.
