This event addresses CENSORSHIP.
Is CENSORSHIP really appropriate?
Do individuals have the right to say whatever they wish even if this offends someone else?
Does CENSORSHIP have the effect of making art more appealing, more glamorous, and more exciting?
Is it controlling and arrogant to suggest the public needs protecting?
Is CENSORSHIP about what’s morally wrong or obscene, or is it subjective?

CENSORSHIP surrounds us, be it freedom of speech, censorship of art and culture, freedom of expression or removal of media that’s deemed to be harmful, insensitive, objectionable, embarrassing or inconvenient to those in power. Thankfully it’s extremely hard (if not impossible) for those in authority to control our personal choices and forms of expression because in order for us to be controlled we must all think the same way, which of course is never really going to happen.

Curated and produced by Oliver Frost and Marc Massive and now in its 8th year, ACT ART is an underground event that takes place twice year, merging art, fashion, pop and club culture. ACT ART programmes experimental, radical, challenging, non-mainstream work that’s sometimes difficult to watch, or be confronted with, by emerging and established artists working in all media. ACT ART offers a space for those who are willing to take risks, have something to say (be it political, confrontational, beautiful, or ugly and where censorship is not an issue, and aims to bring different people together, brake down social groups, steer away from the cliquey art world and its politics, and make art more accessible and fun whilst still remaining thought provoking.

I wish I had found this site in time for Act Art 8: Censored as I have had my performance and art works censored during my degree and since - I have also been asked to self censor so i could submit to a family friendly art space. I will look out for further Act Art submission opportunities. Sioux
