" As we made our way upstairs and through the Smeg fridge door...we were met by a smile that cannot be expressed of how great and infectious it was...Cut to six months later on the London Overground near Dalston sides and I see this sunny smile step onto the carriage. "Elizabeth" I shouted...I find it incredibly convenient how someone’s art can resonate with the exact mind space and events that one is experiencing in life at that present moment and I found that to be the case with Lizzie and her Diving boards series in particular (more about this series below), which ran parallel with the confidence and doubt I was living through at that moment Lizzie came along. "

"ITS ELECTION DAY, so while you get yourself down to the polling station and make your vote count listen in to Alichè being joined by artist Lizzie Reid. They talk identities and fears as a young creative woman... Whilst gossiping about why Boris Johnson is a racist d**k and why they're over clubbing."

"Filtered through the lens of intersectionality the book contains a distillation of our cumulative experiences as womxn of colour. Injecting a passionate optimism into our current state of affairs, the book presents a new vantage point from which to look at poetry. It touches upon almost everything pertaining to our human existence, from our given names, our colonised bodies, our faith, our hair, our bedrooms to our ancestors, our mother tongue, our dance, our dreams, our touch, our taste for tea, and so on. Inside this book, you will find works which embody radical honesty, tenderness, ancestral wisdom, and strength."

Chatting about art school and creativity with lizzie reid from Lizzie's Lines

18 OCT 2019 

with Matej Tomažin

Listen here | Spotify | Apple | Google 

"To kick it all off, today’s run-and-gun podcast (meaning, please excuse the London traffic in the background, it’s inevitable), is with Lizzie Reid from Lizzie’s Lines.

We talked about art school and why going to art school might not be the best option (at least not in places, where education isn’t free (I’m still amazed that people come out of college with debt almost as large as the GDP of a small country). And we also explored her views on the possibilities curatives have in London at this very moment, how a longer hiatus can actually be good for you and much, much more."
