In a climate of polarisation, join us to explore how dissent might be a creative action

We currently live in an increasingly polarised society where for many reasons you can find yourself either ‘inside’ or ‘outside’. Divisions exist politically environmentally, ideologically, economically and socially. At the same time our understanding of our own identity is changing, lines are blurring between an online and offline world. Through conversation and creative participation we can learn more about ourselves, and working collaboratively.
