It's Get Better is an annual night presented by artist Stewart Uoo. Initially founded at NYC’s Artists Space in 2012 bringing together an eclectic group of musicians, artists, performers, poets alongside film and video works, and a cinema programme of artist-selected sex-positive films.
 
Occurring for the first time outside New York City, It’s Get Better V extends across the Institute of Contemporary Arts from sunset to sunrise, moving from performance to screenings to dance party. The night springs from a community of Uoo’s friends, collaborators and heroines, and is organised around perspectives from persons of colour and investments in queer, feminist and radical content.
 
It’s Get Better debuted at Artists Space in New York in 2013, and continued at MoMA PS1, New York, in 2016. Past participants have included rising stars such as Juliana Huxtable, DeSe Escobar, Ian Isiah, Jacolby Satterwhite and Raśl de Nieves, alongside established artists and performers such as Shelley Hirsch, Ryan Trecartin, Isa Genzken and Charles Atlas.
