7 July - 30 September
A galvanising collection of visual arts, screenings, live performances and more spanning themes of migration, oppression, climate change, technology and mental health.
Meet a lone sailor figure braving the bluster and bluff of Brexit. Join artists creating collaborative unions of tape, movement and signage. Witness a performer taking steps backwards, even as democracy retreats in Hong Kong. Consider a charred tree evaporating in the face of climate change. Watch as a woman, wrapped in earth-sprinkled sackcloth, rolls to retrace the footsteps of her ancestors. Indulge in your own 10-minute portraiture, refreshments, postcards, prints and zines.
Galvanise. A gathering of words, poetry, music, film, performance, installation, photography, painting, collage, fine arts and more.
