In 2017 our Christmas part was produced by MAIA Creatives.
For the festive season music, liquor and glitter collided in an infusion of dance and colour. DJ Elliott lead the night through contagious beats, specially curated cocktails and a chance to flaunt on stage. A lip-sync battle for the brave, the sassy and the intrigued, hosted by the number 1 bedroom lip-sync-er, Lou!
Lip-sync song list:
TLC – No Scrubs
Justin Timberlake – Cry Me A River
Spandeau Ballet – Gold
Madonna – Like a Virgin
Black Eyed Peas – My Humps
Mariah Carey – All I Want For Christmas

GU’s Christmas Party was part of December’s Digbeth First Friday.
In 2013, Amahra Spence set up MAIA Creatives, a non-profit exploring how artists live, work and contribute in society through artist-led interventions. The group’s most recent project is an artist-led hotel, project space and community hub, that will serve as a training and development ground for artists and young people. In collaboration with Tobi Kyeremateng of BAMWorks, a nationwide resource-sharing network for BAME producers, MAIA recently hosted a meet-up at Impact Hub Birmingham for Creative Producers of Colour; to learn, exchange ideas and piece together solutions with a regional focus.
