TUF Takeover at the MoPop


TUF Takeover

In partnership with Pop Conference, TUF Collective and MoPOP present an immersive, subversive, Sky Church takeover.

Saturday, April 22, 2017   10 AM - 5 PM

Visual art showing thru April 23rd

This event is all ages.

The personal is political, and TUF exists as an act of resistance against the status quo in the artistic realm. The collective strives to make space for femme, non-binary, and trans individuals in a cis-male dominated world, advocating to give marginalized folks a voice as much as possible. TUF’s takeover at Pop Conference celebrates the creativity of its members with thoughtfully curated music from their talented DJs, and immersive art from a range of TUF artists in the form of projected visuals on the Sky Church’s HD LED screen and some tangible, unexpected mediums.

It will be held in Judkins Park and will be free and open to the public to uphold our commitment to accessibility.
