Project blurb Artists Jez Dolan and Joseph Richardson are launching a mission to save Polari, one of the worldâ€™s most endangered languages, a bold yet secretive part of Gay history. Join the artists for a bona bijou troll through the fantabulosa history of Polari, learn the basics, and get involved with recording and saving a dying language! The Polari Mission is a collaborative multi - disciplinary project by artists Jez Dolan & Joseph Richardson. The project uses Polari as a starting point to examine how contemporary LGBT groups and individuals view, understand, appreciate, utilise, or see reflected in their own â€˜communities of languageâ€™ the influence of Polari, and its impact on how we communicate today. The project will produce a series of exhibitions, performances, visual artwork and audience participation. Polari in a nutshell Polari was a secret language used by gay men, lesbians and others in London, and other UK cities with a gay sub - culture between the 1930â€™s and 1970â€™s, and apart from a few familiar words, is little known today.
