Event description
Coffee, Chocolate and Climate Change | Poetry Film Premieres | Live Music and Spoken Word

About this event

We invite truth-seekers, chocolate lovers and coffee drinkers and adventurers to

come and be inspired to talk about issues around climate change through the stories

of Coffee and Chocolate.

As global temperatures rise, the quality and quantity of our crops decreases. In the

not-so-distant future, coffee bean production will halt – caffeine will become extinct.

By 2050, there will be no more chocolate.

Step forward into the future…

July, 2031. An underground event took place in a secret location in South East

London. It was an act of creative resistance against climate and environmental

injustice using live music, spoken word, storytelling and cutting-edge visuals.

Now, with some of the Midlands’ finest poetry film-making talent and poetry

performers, Nottingham’s New Art Exchange hosts an underground Cece’s Satellite

Speakeasy as part of the growing dissent around climate inequality and the hoarding of chocolate and coffee beans.

This is a Premiere screening of original artist activist poetry films by:
