INFERNO is a club night and community project that offers a platform and space for LGBTQ+ artists, performers, musicians and DJ’s. The INFERNO team has created SUMMIT a two-day seminar exploring the intersections of nightlife, performance art, music and queerness as well as exploring themes such as class, culture and creativity. These topics will be explored through panel discussions, screenings, conversations and performances featuring a London-centric cast of artists, writers, thinkers, business people and musicians.
