Love and Starfish Art presents Zah Zah & Friends

The government are trying to make it impossible for the young artistic community to thrive. This past weekend at Zah Zah & Friends, the youth of Derby said fuck that.

In the midst of a fresh recession and arts funding cuts across the midlands, the young people of Derby and beyond showed that creatives will not let culture die without a fight. Love and Starfish Art played host to the second community exhibition spearheaded by visual artist Zah Zah Binks. As well as showcasing a mix of existing and previously unseen work he welcome artists across multiple disciplines to share their latest endeavours with the exciting and ever burgeoning community. With music from local rap stalwart Loue Marc, DJ sets from some of the city's most exciting up and coming and established talents, a pop-up store from cult favourite skate brand Boredom and visual arts from Syahi - there was truly something for everyone. Whatever the means of funding it, the midlands creative scene isn't going anywhere.
