Rosie’s Disobedient Press

City Art Centre

For EAF24, we have invited Rosie’s Disobedient Press, a collaborative project by artists Lisette May Monroe and Adrien Howard, to reflect on the framework for EAF’s 20th Birthday and on the landscape of the city over the past 20 years.

Rosie’s have been working with archives and organisations local to Edinburgh to look at language and words as a historical act of resistance and bringing this into our modern day circumstance. Rosie’s will present works of textual intervention which will appear in print, on clothing, across windows and banners throughout the city, including at the EAF24 Welcome Space.

Running in collaboration with Glasgow International Festival (7 – 23 June 2024) and working with designer Mitchell F. Gilles, this work reflects on the often overlooked enclaves of a city during times of cultural spectacle.

Care considerations: The work will speak openly about queer histories and protest within Edinburgh.

This work is generously supported by JACK ARTS Scotland, part of the BUILDHOLLYWOOD family, Edinburgh World Heritage, and Scottish Government’s Festivals EXPO Fund.
