Alien Nation – The art of blending in

We want to hear your story
We’re assembling a collective of artists to take part in a one-off show. ‘Alien Nation’ will be an exhibition about all the aliens who call London home – an event filled with art, music and more – all inspired by George Mikes’s book How to be an Alien.

We are calling all London internationals to share their unique stories of how, when, why they moved to London.Whatever your take on London, however weird or wonderful, we want to hear about it.

What is this all about?

Your personal anecdotes and stories will be part of an exhibition inspired by George Mikes’s book How to be an Alien. This book brilliantly captures the awkward transition that many people experience when first moving to London. From the weather to the incomprehensible social niceties, it is despite these things that foreigners continue to flock here. Whether you’re an alien or not, the cultural diversity of London affects us all, and this exhibition will be a celebration of that
