Sadness is a no gO-Zone // exhibition

Artists’ and designers’ responses to the climate crisis and the work of environmental organisation Adapt. With a focus on happiness and motivation, the exhibition handles climate communication in an innovative way!

Founded by Josie Tucker and Richard Ashton, two designers who, frustrated with the climate crisis, decided to put their efforts into activism. @adapt_____ www.adaptivecapacity.world

Voiced // sound installation

A new sound project by Syrup. The audio piece will explore the 21st century meaning of protest. How has the meaning changed over time, and what does it mean for different communities? Voiced creates a listening experience that we will invite people to add to throughout the evening.
