Rebel Rebel Artists

A Storyhouse Young Programmers Takeover


This April, the Storyhouse Young Programmers are excited to take over the Storyhouse Cinema with Rebel Rebel Artists – a weekend of films and events showcasing iconic artists who have gone against the grain and challenged societal expectations.

With the upcoming release of the Amy Winehouse biopic, Back to Black, we look to highlight art, which has always been a form of resistance that challenges social norms and inspires change. It stands as a mirror and a catalyst. A point of reflection and a way forward. From musicians to artists to writers, ‘Rebel Rebel Artists’ celebrates voices who have used their creativity to elicit change in their respective fields, as well as in society itself.

With social media being a normal part of everyday life for the majority of us, it is easier now than ever before to hear alternative voices, actively oppose the mainstream and find power as a collective. The Storyhouse Young Programmers have found inspiration through this, and so put together this exciting season of films to celebrate some of the radical figures who defied the mainstream through their art, and helped shape the world as we know it.
