Here-Now-Us is a late night event featuring live music, spoken word performances and interactive installations as part of Emerge – London’s new afterhours festival. A unique night of artistic exploration, Here-Now-Us features a fierce lineup of young and exciting artists, with London trio Benin City – pulsing rave synths and Guardian's "one to watch" – headlining, supported by modern musical enigma Mina Rose spoken word artist and award-winning poet Sanah Ahsan and rapper and theatre-maker John Akinde

Taking place across the Nunnery Gallery's former convent's gothic arches and hidden outdoor courtyard, this one-off event aims to showcase some of London's freshest talent with a backdrop of arresting artwork, as the gallery also presents the 2019 Bow Open Show, selected by Carey Young whose selection responds to "our current political moment".
