Alongside the exhibition, campaigns, organizations and creatives will be hosting a schedule of events, talks, trainings and workshops. Including performance artist Mark McGowan, AKA the Artist Taxi Driver (https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/myevent?eid=442941278287) and more to come soon!
“𝙍𝙚𝙨𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙖𝙣𝙘𝙚 is doing something really important in capturing the history of grassroots social movements in the UK…. told by the people who were there. It is an innovative model of collective archiving and exhibition-making (which) gathers together a dynamic mix of documents, images and know-how that will serve as a resource for present and future movements. It is evidence that you can change the world from below, by collective, organised disobedience.”
Catherine Flood – curator of “Disobedient Objects”, Victoria & Albert Museum.
