What We Do

Mission

Andro and Eve create unique, feel good events that celebrate queer culture where everyone is welcome. We programme excellent film, performance, and music that explores queer stories, often focusing on voices that are otherwise marginalised, to reflect and celebrate the diversity that exists within the LGBTQIA community. Our approach is playful, creative, and motivated by a desire to provide accessible opportunities for the community to come together, develop their understanding, and share in memorable experiences.

Vision

Celebrating queer culture through memorable events that inspire.

Values

UNIQUE & PLAYFUL

We create high quality events and products with a sense of play, and believe creativity needs space, time and resources in order to flourish.

REPRESENTATIVE AND ACCESSIBLE

We programme artistic content that is representative of a broad range of identities and experiences, and aim to create spaces that are accessible to all.

EMPOWERING AND PROUD

We are proud of our lived experiences and aim to create opportunities that empower others to embrace their full selves and develop their own creativity, skills and talents.

History

Andro and Eve was founded in Spring 2016 as an informal event series by Katherine Warman and Rhiannon Scutt to address the lack of safe and inclusive spaces for the LGBTQ+ community to enjoy queer culture in Sheffield. Andro & Eve has hosted film screenings, delivered drag king workshops, and are the creators of Sheffield’s first drag king cabaret, The Kingdom Come, and queer party series A Reyt Queer Do. Andro and Eve has collaborated with organisations including Our Mel, SheFest Sheffield, Rainbow Noir, Theatre Deli Sheffield, Cast in Doncaster, BoiBox London and DocFest. In 2018, Andro & Eve won ‘Best Single Event’ at the Cinema For All Film Society of the Year Awards for their one – off screening of Sekiya Dorsett’s film ‘The Revival: Women and The Word’ and have been described as creating ‘Events unlike any others in Sheffield’ – Our Fave Places.

As of October 2018 Andro & Eve is a company limited by guarantee working as a not for profit social enterprise, led by board of directors.

What Our Audience say

‘Loved the Women & the Word event, great spread of zines, badges and cakes! Awesome organisers, very inclusive, very welcoming and they made the event really accessible & held the safe space fantastically. Definitely one of the best queer nights I’ve been to in a while!’

‘Had a fantastic evening at Kingdom Come #3 in Sheffield. The acts were amazing, but also the organisers were lovely and genuinely disability friendly. It was the first place I’d felt welcomed rather than barely tolerated in a long time. I’m a bit in love with everyone involved and can’t wait for the next one’.
