What is Ura Matsuri?
Ura Matsuri is a festival to showcase works of migrant artists with Japanese/ East Asian cultural heritage whose creation is inspired by contemporary British culture.
The Ura Matsuri Collective (UMC), a group of mainly Japanese female artists who are part of London based Japanese pop performance group, inimitable "Frank Chickens", have been organising this festival annually for the last five years.
Ura, meaning “other side” in Japanese, and Matsuri, meaning “local community festival. We would like to create a platform for work which challenges preconceptions about people of Japanese and East Asian heritage, and brings together local artists and audiences. The 2022 festival will feature music, dance and street performance , film and installations, held across several spaces in St. Margaret’s House, an arts and wellbeing venue in East London,
