Find out how to get involved

Have an idea for an act and want to discuss it?

An Act of Exuberant Defiance can be whatever you want it to be – all we ask is it seeks to honour the principles of our Humanifesto and addresses itself to one of our six themes which are: Resist; Insight/Incite; Respect; Reform; Regroup & Renew; Revolution.

Once we receive your information we will see how we can link you up with what you need to make your Act. We also advise you to attend our Open House events and Patty n Ting chats to find collaborators. Check the Activate page for upcoming dates.

Tell us about you ideas by completing our form.

Are you able to offer time and skills to support 81 acts?

You can support as a volunteer, a venue for Acts, a group or network of participants, a producer, an influencer or in any other way that you can think of.


That’s great news! You can upload your act to the website. Follow the process to provide the information we need to include your Act on the Acts listings page.

It may take a while for your Act to appear on the website as we will need to proof read it and may need to discuss it with you further before publishing.

Before you upload your act, please check the prep list on the next page to ensure you have everything you need to complete the form.

Please note you will also need to confirm that you have all the relevant licenses and permissions in place to make your Act – Terms & Conditions are on the following page.

In addition, you will be asked to agree to the Exuberant Contract with 81 Acts. VIEW HERE

Public Events:

If your Act will happen in public space then we ask that you email the EventLambeth team at Lambeth Council to let them know the shape, feel and reach of your Act. If necessary, you will then be supported to submit an events application. This will make sure that you have any support/permissions needed and that we are working to keep members of the public safe throughout. You can contact them here: – make sure to put 81 Acts in the subject.
