Last week, Mundo Latinx (Latinx World) arrived at London College of Fashion’s “Fashion Space Gallery”. Exploring art, culture and identity in Latin America, the exhibition showcases a variety of artists’ work around the themes of empowerment, justice and visibility within current cultural and sociopolitical structures.

Expect a celebration of fashion, indigenous communities, heritage and activism through film, textiles and fashion design, photography and illustration…

Mundo Latinx was curated by White Line Projects and commissioned by Ligaya Salazar, with Graphic Design by Studio Rejane Dal Bello.

Just when the novelty of pop up cinemas was starting to feel like a distant, summer exclusive memory, The Luna Cinema aka The UK’s leading producer of pop-up film screenings – came through with something special.

Over the next few days you can watch rom-com faves Love Actually and A Star Is Born, as well as anti-Valentine’s screenings of Kill Bill Vol 1 and Thelma and Louise. Oh, and they’re hosted at the stunning Natural History Museum.

Our pick’s Pretty Woman, and we’ll be silently crying a few rows in front of you.

Catch Queen Neneh Cherry live at Roundhouse.

Yep, Neneh Cherry’s still going strong. To promote 2018’s album Broken Politics featuring “Natural Skin Deep” (last week’s dreamy new video above), Cherry’ embarked on a full EU tour yesterday.

You can still catch her at Camden’s Roundhouse on Thursday. Grab a ticket for your Mum, and what are you waiting for?

You might have already heard of Superhoe, the performance debut of writer Nicôle Lecky’s monologue about the realities of life as a 24-year-old mixed-race East Londoner, co-produced by Talawa Theatre and the Royal Court, which is currently showing at Sloane Square’s The Royal Court Theatre.

Focusing on the trials and tribulations of dropping out of University (and, in turn, spending hours on end alone scrolling through social media), Lecky explores the intricacies of every-day life as a London-based millennial:

“I’m a singer slash rapper. I’m not the sort of girl that will be working in fucking Wetherspoons for 8 pounds an hour […] I look at my page and think ‘Fuck me do I want her life!’ then I remember I do have my life – only it feels a bit different.”

Grab tickets here for £18.
