This is a new multilingual platform in Glasgow featuring BPOC, LGBT+ and disabled creativity. We are looking for BPOC, LGBT+ and disabled poets, artists, musicians, and comedians to perform and showcase their creativity.
Themes: chosen family, loyalty, friendships, connections, nostalgia, community, giving back, celebrate you.
U belong offers a safe space to get together and share our creativity. This is a community that uplifts, and advocates for wellness, compassion and solidarity, and you belong here.
Want to perform at this event?
