There are lots of random events and happenings. The most important thing is to notice it and enjoy it – those curious accidents.

In this project we want to talk exactly about these memories, recorded with a photo camera. It lets to look at events in a different view, gives a smile and inspires to be humorous, look for more adventurous and crazy randomness.

We want to inspire as much people as possible to join this project by sending your own random photos. It does not need to be professionally taken. All you need to do is to remember your very craziest day, find a photo and send it to teresa@floatingartland.com with a short story, telling what's happened at that very moment. We know you have many of those ;)

On the day photography and short videos will be projected on the wall with occasional short performances, recreating those random moments.

Let's figure it out. Join for a night of poetry, comedy, and performance.

As well as being one of the 2016/17 Artist in Residences at the Tate, in the last year their work has been featured in Artsy, Manon, Wildabout - as well as performing in venues both locally and internationally.

Dj Dae is a Queer gender bending Pisces hailing from South East London by way of Nigeria and Cameroon. Blending all your favourite tracks with your soon to be favourite Afrobeat tracks until your bed calls your name louder than the music- When in doubt, look for them on the dancefloor

On 5 January 2017, the home of the Minesweeper Collective, a boat based in Deptford, sadly burned down. Thankfully no one was hurt but artists' work and studios were destroyed overnight.

Many of the Minesweeper Collective's artists have also performed at Grow, Hackney over the past few years including Mai Nguyen Tri who is organising this fundraiser to help support them. They are an amazingly creative bunch who now need to rebuild their project and we hope you'll come along to this event to show solidarity and support them.

It is a free entry with a suggested dontion of £5 and in return you'll experience performances by:

Mai & Ampers&nd
The Dublo
Noel & Ape
DJ Calculator
Minesweeper Crew

AMPERS&ND
London based improvisers of industrial ambient noise, Ampersand are an improvisational sound ensemble who produce an experience of sound to envelop the audience in the act of the moment and the art of the moment. This uniquely pan-generational group utilises found objects, engineered metal, deconstructed traditional instruments and audio toys. The sound, and the experience of that sound, are imposed on all the senses, to share with the audience a charged and superlayered emotional state. Ampersand are Brian Bushell, Joseph Oldfield, Stephen Oldfield and Paul Wells. http://www.ampersand.tv/

NGUYEN TRI MAI
Nguyen Tri Mai is a Franco Vietnamese dance artist. For the last 20 years, she has drawn her inspiration from the waters, back and fro between Brittany coasts, salt marshes and the river, pools and canals of the East End of London. Mixing her Butoh dancing spirit with her passion for improvising with live music, Mai loves to express her intense movements in the moment, bring light to a space with her explosiveness. Mai has collaborated with musicians, film makers and photographers and specializes in site- specific and outdoor performances. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=hackney+wicked+festival+fear+of+fluffing+german+delhi+2014 https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=the+white+beginning+barbara+doux
