An artistic intervention. Offensive. Eruption. Chance to vent some f*cking rage. And make the world a better place.
In March 2022, we are producing a digital festival of ecological citizenship. It is timed to coincide with Earth Hour 2022. And we’re currently working with amazing young women from the Liverpool City Region, who are the artists and activists that will bring it to life.
The project’s weekly workshops have been led by a wonderful roster of women doing amazing things in the worlds of environmental custodianship and justice.
